A Life That Matters
“Therefore their days did he consume in vanity”
We only pass through life but once. Many of us already have a number of miles under our feet. We do not know the measure of our days and surely do not want to waste the ones we have remaining.
Charles Spurgeon said, “None live so fruitlessly and so wretchedly as those who allow sense and sight to override faith, and their reason and appetite to domineer over their fear of God.” Unbelief, pride, and self-will when added together equals emptiness and multiplies sorrow.
“What a nothing is our life” apart from divine grace and purpose. God help us to get a hold of His will and live a life that matters. Every day spent in His service can be filled to overflowing.
“According to my earnest expectation and
my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed,
but that with all boldness, as always, so now
also Christ shall be magnified in my body,
whether it be by life, or by death. For to me
to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
Philippians 1:20, 21
