Investing in Eternity

Posted on: 7-15-112014

This morning I spent some time doing some yard work. As I watched a pile of sticks and some old wood from a broken swing burn, I thought about the following Scriptures:

“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.” 1 Corinthians 3:11-15

We spend so much time “doing” things, but when all is said and done, will any of it matter? Are the things we invest our time in now things that will make a difference in ten years or twenty years or fifty years, or after we’re gone? More importantly, will the things we invest our time in now going to make an eternal difference? Will the things we find so vital now going to be things that burn when they are tested by fire or will they be things that endure? Anything we are doing that is not built on the foundation of Jesus Christ will be burned up, but the things we do that are built on the foundation of Jesus Christ will endure for eternity. Make a wise investment in the things you do…invest in the things that are built on Christ for these things will last forever.
