What Really Works

“When we only do whatever works, in the end it really doesn’t work. Life has to have that ontic referent of the eternal from which the temporal must find its relevance.

Eternity is like the anvil; time is like the hammer – it beats away at the anvil of eternity.
Ultimately, the hammer will be thrown away; the anvil will remain.

So we must build our lives upon things that are eternal.” — Ravi Zacharias

“What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?”
— Matthew 16:26 —

Profoundly true. Perfectly timely.

Who’s under the Spotlight?

Do you love the Cross because it makes much of you?

Or do you love it because it enables you to enjoy an eternity of making much of God?

— John Piper

The Truth About Forever

Everyone thinks that forever is simply the exaggeration of life here in this world. If forever is simply stated that way, how then should we live our lives?  Better yet,  ask ourselves, what is truly the truth about forever?

 

“Life can be long or short, it all depends on how you choose to live it. It’s like forever, always changing. for any of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. You can never know for sure, so you’d better make every second count. What you have to decide is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, is this how you’d want to have spent it?”                                                                                           

                                                                                                                   —Sarah Dessen

“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? 

Is anything worth more than your soul?”

—Matthew 16:26 (NLT)

Stand Up for Truth!

“Conviction is something we believe,
not because someone is making us, not because we have to,
but because we are convinced it’s what God would have us believe.”
 
— Joshua Harris, “Dug Down Deep”

Are your beliefs rooted in eternity?
