When we are reminded of our own mortality, we may allow it to inspire us to LIVE for the immortal glory of God. If we knew right now that today would be our last day on this earth and that tonight we would be our date with heaven—how would we spend the day? We usually don’t make a radical change in our life’s priorities until a doctor tells us we’re dying; and then, unfortunately, our health may be so bad that we are riddled with physical limitations or we don’t have much time left on earth. Why not start now? What is more important today than living in God’s perfect will? We can’t take our money or worldly success with us and–it means nothing in heaven. We won’t take our PhD, JD or MD with us; however, we may reap eternal rewards with them when they are used for God’s eternal purposes. If we allow Him, He will direct us and His Spirit will pour out of EVERYTHING we do today and thus, at the end of today when we lay our head down to sleep, we will KNOW that our lives were lived for His eternal purpose. His Spirit can pour out of us at work, at home, in a restaurant, a park, a ball game—or anywhere that life’s obligations and necessities take us. When we make God an integral part of our lives, He does not stay hidden and bottled up inside us—people see Him in us! How wonderful to know at the end of EACH day that He used us—on THIS day–to make an eternal difference! We are entreated by God’s Word: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever.” (1 Pet. 4:10-11) Our life hangs in a more delicate balance between heaven and earth than we ever recognize or realize. We don’t get to turn back the clock to yesterday. We have THIS glorious day to live and speak to bring glory to God for eternity!
