Eternity!It is better to   go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, because that is   the end of every man, and the living takes it to heart (Ecclesiastes 7:2)

Eternity is a long period of time! It’s hard to grasp   that eternity is never-ending. But let me give you a little illustration to   help you understand. Imagine that we could empty the largest body of water in   the world, the Pacific Ocean, and fill it up with sand as tall as the highest   mountain in the world, Mount Everest. Now imagine that a bird flies by and   takes one grain of sand off that sand pile once every 100 billion years. How   long will it take for that sand pile to disappear? We can consider that   amount of time to be equal to one second in eternity.

We weren’t just created for sixty or eighty years of life on earth. We   were created for eternity. Every baby born on earth is headed toward its   dying day; that’s just reality. But we were made for more than that. We are   meant to experience eternity in the fullness of life with the Father. Death   is simply the doorway we must pass through to transform into the realm of the   eternal.

Paul understood this and said: “We also have as our ambition,   whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. For we must all appear   before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for   his deeds in the body” (2 Corinthians 5:9-10). Paul said that because he   was a creature of eternity, he would live his earthly life for God. He would   live in time in a way that pleased God.

If you’re living in time and for time, you’re wasting time.

Live for eternity.
May God Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us   from all their enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
