“And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever” (I John 2:17, ESV).
Human beings are creatures of eternity. God created people for eternity and eternity is ever present in the life you now live.
And, your life as a child of God is about living for a future hope through your present reality.
The beginning of the end of this world started with the first coming of Jesus. So you must learn how to live your life with one foot planted in this present world and one foot planted in eternity.
Because, when you do the will of God in this present life, you are beginning to experience eternal life.
Dallas Willard says that as you integrate your life into the unseen and spiritual world of God’s reality, your life on this earth begins to take on the nature of the eternal.
Eternity begins now with this present life, so live today like it’s the first day of the rest of your eternal life.
“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10, ESV)
