From The Archives: Quality of (Eternal) Life

You often hear about people wanting a great quality of life.  Usually you will hear about this as people begin to grow older.  They want to do things such as exercise and eat healthy in order to improve their present quality of life and their quality of life in the later years.  You can’t blame anyone for wanting to do this, so that they are able to continue doing many of the same things as they age as they do in the present.  I wonder, though, if followers of Christ do the same thing so that they will have a great quality of eternal life.

Contrary, perhaps, to popular belief, eternal life doesn’t begin when we die.  Jesus came to give to those who believe in him eternal life. So, once you have this eternal life, why wouldn’t someone do all they can to have a great quality of eternal life?  Surely it isn’t just about punching a ticket to heaven, is it?  So, what can we do to develop this great quality of eternal life right here and right now?  I think it’s pretty simple.

1.  Saturate your life with prayer.

2.  Saturate your life with God’s word.

3.  Saturate your life with Godly fellowship.

4.  Saturate your life with Godly worship.

Do you do these things?  Are there other things that you think will give you a great quality of eternal life right now?

    Those are good thoughts brother. I am trusting I will shed all the extra pounds as I slip from this frail body that is destined to age into my new heavenly body. Somewhere in the Word I think it say, exercise profits little. Though the body may decay our soul will be build up if we would practice those four things you wrote about. Good post.

      Thanks Betty. I can see exercising so that I can physically keep going and performing the mission God has called me to.
