Just how much of what I do in this day will last for eternity? (Matt 3:8-12)
As repented believers we are to produce fruit. Good fruit. Eternal, lasting fruit in keeping with the great gift we have been given.
It occurred to me that C.S. Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, Elisabeth Elliot, Corrie Ten Boom, Amy Carmichael, Harriet Tubman and Billy Graham each only had 24 hours in their days too.
Somehow, they all did extraordinary, eternal things with those same 24 hours.
They impacted others for the cause of Christ.
What made all their days different and their eternal impact so great?
Surely, they asked the Lord to help them see the eternal in each day. Surely, they relied on His strength instead of their own to follow His lead and store up treasures in Heaven.
Famous missionary and theologian, Hudson Taylor once said, “All God’s giants have been weak men, who did great things for God because they reckoned on His being with them.”
Oh friend, we are all weak but when we realize God is with us, and in us, when we rely on Him, when we ask Him to show us eternal opportunities in the day, I believe He does! I believe He we will equip us to carry His light to a dark world!
Will you join me in praying? “God help me know You are with me in this day. Please open my eyes to eternal moments. Help me to care for the souls of others and anoint my tongue to tell of Your goodness. I know I’m weak, but as I remember You are with me, I can be your vessel to do eternal things.”
