We live in the here and now. Voting is important, being productive in our daily lives counts, having an impact on those around us and our world matters. OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE CONNECTED TO, AND ARE Accountable to THE ONE WHO IS FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING. IN THE END, WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE, GOD MATTERS...
while all else is finite and meaningless apart from and opposed to Jesus Christ, Him Who was, is, and shall be forever and ever. For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, But the word of the Lord endures forever." 1 Peter 1:24
Men are but dust, and all of their possessions turn to rust, and their ideas are replaced with new ones. No man desires to be but a memory. Only God has the power, and the pleasure of making that which is finite...to live forever.
God has promised this for all men. Eternal life in His presence, for all who trust in Christ, who see their need to be saved, and repent. He has also promised eternal life away from His presence for those who ignore, reject, and oppose His Son Jesus Christ. Everlasting existence away from all that is good, in an eternal state of misery, forever. Both are in the Scripture. God has spoken. Christ has risen. HE IS LORD.
Delight yourself in God...or else. The problem that man has with this is that they want to be in charge of their own destiny, but have no power over death, judgement, or God.
