Eternal Perspective

Psalm 90:3-5
A thousand years in your eyes are merely a yesterday, but humans you return to dust, saying, “Return, you mortals!” Before a watch passes in the night, you have brought them to their end.

Life can seem meaningless when viewed in a “worldly” perspective. Without a belief in something more when this life ends, “dust” would be our final destination. But thanks to Jesus…we believe that God loves us and that there is life after death. Many witnessed the resurrected Jesus. This gives us hope. Jesus called us to start building God’s Kingdom now by dying to our egos’ desires so that God’s desires can rise in us. Then we would spread the good news (Gospel) by living a life of love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion. We only have a short amount of time on Earth to do this. Our bodies will in fact return to dust…but our souls will live on. Jesus promised that God would transform this world into a new creation. How else…but through us? We are called to take part in that on-going transformation.
