Christ is Eternal Life
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.John 17:3
Heaven would not be heaven without the Father and the Son; it would just be a beautiful location. Our Spiritual body is spiritual because we live in the environment filled with the Father and the Son. Without the Father and the Son, the environment would be empty and meaningless. It is the same in this life; without being close to the Father and the Son, life is meaningless.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18) If we live each day as the Lord’s servants with our eyes fixed on eternity, it draws us closer to the Lord and gives us peace and comfort. Being eternally minded has an amazing effect on our soul. It’s almost like our spiritual soul is living on the doorstep to Heaven with Christ. The closer we are to Christ, the closer our souls are to Heaven.
I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. (Proverbs 8:17) We seek the Lord when we focus on the unseen which moves our hearts into a loving relationship with Christ. The more love we have in our hearts, the more love we have for Christ and our love for Christ draws our soul closer to Heaven while living on earth. The closer we are to Christ, the more love, peace, joy, security, and comfort we experience.
Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4) We live each day close to the Lord and overcome the world with our soul reaching to Heaven. There is no limit to the blessings from our loving relationship with Christ which means we strive to serve Him with all our hearts. There is nothing better in all creation than knowing Christ in a close, loving relationship — it’s like Heaven on earth.
Today, focus on the unseen even though you are living in what is seen. See the world through the eyes and heart of Jesus who focused on the unseen knowing his home was in Heaven. Live today with your soul close to Christ through the Spirit.
Prayer: Lord, help me to focus on the unseen and be closer to you today. Guide me in the spirit to serve you today with a heart of love. In Jesus’ name, Amen
