Build Your Hopes On Things Eternal – Aug. 26

house

MOST OF US live in a house, whether it is a single or multiple family dwelling…

The house Paul mentions in 2 Corinthians 5:1, is the human body.

Like a dwelling houses people, this body houses within it the true person, the spirit of the person.

We cannot see that spirit, but as we are walking by faith we confidently, hopefully await the day in which we can be a home with the Lord (5:2).

We spend mountains of money on maintaining the body:

.  Vitamins

.  Medicine

.  Cosmetic equipment

.  Surgeries,

and the like.

It is all ultimately vain.

Paul’s encouragement is to invest in that home not made with hands.

All of us will stand before Christ in judgment.

Those physical, material things will have meant very little compared to the spiritual responsibilities we had and how we prepared for that final day.

While we go about our daily tasks in this body, tending to earthly responsibilities, may we never forget to keep building our hopes on things eternal!  Used by permission – More STRENGTH for the JOURNEY, A Daily Devotional Guide, p. 252.  Copies of the book can be purchased at:  https://little-acorn-kids.myshopify.com/
