The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:17
I’m sure there are those that would say “how boring”. But you see, this is a perfect example why I can’t base my future on my own judgment. Its like asking an ant to climb Mount Everest. Its just so far above the ant’s imagination, an impossibility. I can’t even imagine or perceive what eternal life would be like. I have to trust God’s description, and its the best one I’ve heard, and there are some strange ones out there.
This verse says “but the man who does the will of God lives forever”, why would I come to the conclusion that it would be boring? Because my perception is inadequate in forming an opinion or accurate assessment. That’s where doing Gods will comes into play:
“Habakkuk 2:4 Look, his ego is inflated; he is without integrity. But the righteous one will live by his faith.”
Living by faith is paramount in doing God’s Will. That means we trust God with everything involved in our lives. In this verse we get a glimpse of the power of Godly faith:
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.
You will find in doing God’s Will as you learn just what it is, that great peace and safety, as well as prosperity and a good life are to be had. Even going through the worst of times you will know that eternity awaits, not just nothing. My inner being knows there is more than this life and if everyone would be honest, would admit the same.
In God’s Word the Bible, you will find all of the answers to all of your questions, even to those you can’t imagine.
Begin your journey, get to know God!
