DONE? I THINK NOT

The amount of material written and the amount of data and advice coursing throughout the immaterial world of the web, one would think there would be nothing else to say. However, I shall again add to the blog another saying. My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh (Ecclesiastes 12:12). The wisdom of the teacher within the pages of this text declares that study causes weariness. Weariness because much of the data to consume is vanity and vexation of spirit. No one knows the time of their expiration or what will produce success or failure. Time and chance happens to them all. Because many events happen to the good and bad many or disillusioned by being good. Sometimes the sinner simply prospers in doing sinful things that bring attention to millions. Book deals are made and so on. Why be good if I can do evil and be rewarded? Because all things will be judged by God.

The day of ones death is not the finality of our existence. Done? I think not. You simply pass from this life into the next. It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment (Hebrews 9:27). Judgment? Yes! The Lord Jesus Christ measures and sees the good and the bad and without him, passing the judgment and entering heaven is impossible. We all sin and fall short of God’s glory. If you’re saying right now that this is religious nonsense, think about how sin has affected your life. If sin has not caused you tears and shame then keep pretending you’re done. I for one think not.

  1. You are right, of course but while we are here, it’s a magnificent journey in drawing close to God. We must love God with our hearts, souls, and minds and our neighbors as ourselves. The problem being that most of us don’t love ourselves and we were made in God’s image. What a shame we don’t see him reflected in us.

    • Drawing nearing to the Lord is an increasingly difficult task with so many distractions pulling us here and there, but because God has given us the Holy Spirit, he ever reminds us. The world be more far better, if we all realized as you have mentioned, that all are created in God’s image.

  2. Excellent post Roger! As Christians we must do what is right. If we follow Jesus’ footsteps, we are on the right track.
    Thanks for sharing. God bless.

  3. Great Post! Thanks for sharing. Through Christ EVERYTHING is possible!

  4. I just don’t understand how so many people who do wrong, prosper, when I struggle to make the right decisions in life but feel like my cross is too much to bear at times.

    • If in this life alone we have success and fortune and in the afterlife which is far longer you have separation from God which equals lack, poverty, and suffering. Which is better? I would rather submit to poverty and then have a bright afterlife then to strive for fleeting riches. This is not say that all wealthy people are sinners without Christ, but the reward of Christ is far better, then temporary pleasure.
