Just Passing Through
By Adrian Rogers
“And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” 1 John 2:17
The only thing that is going to last are the things of God. Period.
The world is passing away. Our days are fleeting. One day we will all be gone from this earth as we know it. You see, we’re not citizens of earth trying to get to heaven. We are citizens of heaven sojourning here on earth. This earth is not our home.
Are you living for the pleasures of the flesh? Or for the joy of the Spirit?
Are you living for the praise of men? Or for the glory of God?
Are you living for time? Or are you living for eternity?
Are you living for the things that can be seen? Or for the things that cannot be seen?
One of these days, this old world and all of its vaulted culture, proud philosophies, egocentric intellectualism, and godless materialism is going to be forgotten. But he that “doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”
Take stock: What are you really living for?
