The face of your existence will change, as it does with every human that has ever been born. You will walk through the door of death and enter into a place that has always been. That’s an absolute guarantee.
It doesn’t matter what you gain here. You will still encounter THE radical change.
If you were to be given 300 million dollars, you could spend the rest of this life doing what you please. But take a good look at what you please to do. Does your pleasure involve the things of the place that has forever been? According to the Lord’s own words, that’s very unlikely.
Perhaps a hundred years. That’s all we have. Then, beyond our volition, we are ushered into the place of Eternity. Whose pleasure we have desired will determine our riches forever. Or our extreme poverty.
I’m not talking about religion here. I’m talking about our own will to do God’s desire.
Kelly Willard was right when she said, “If you don’t have a willing heart ask Him to give you one”.
Count as best you can (the clock is running down), how much time are you sure you have left? How much of you does Jesus deserve to own? Your estimation determines God’s bounty.
Now do yourself a favor. Act on what you know.
