Eternal Truths to Remember Each Day

In this summer’s issue of Randy Alcorn’s Eternal Perspectives magazine, he lists six biblical principles for living every day in light of eternity.

  1. There are only two eternal destinations—heaven or hell—and I and every person I know will go to one or the other (Matthew 7:13-14).
  2. This world (as it is now) is not my home and everything in it will burn, leaving behind only what’s eternal (2 Pet. 3:10-12).
  3. My choices and actions in this life have a direct influence on the world and the life to come (Rev. 22:12).
  4. My life is being examined by God, the Audience of One, and the only appraisal of my life that will ultimately matter is His (Rom. 14:12).
  5. God is sovereign, and I can trust that He is working all things—including the most difficult things—in my life together for good (Rom. 8:28).
  6. My ultimate home will be the New Earth, where I will see and enjoy God and serve Him as a resurrected being in a resurrected human society (2 Pet. 3:13)

Are you living each day in light of your eternal destiny? Truths like these mediated upon first thing in your day will certainly help.
