where am I going when this life is over?
God's word is about life — that is, how to live life at it’s best and how to find your purpose in living. Some people are trying to get the best out of life in places where it can’t be found. Our Lord came into this world so that you may have the best life. In John 10:10, Jesus tells us “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
Are we going to resort to material things to get the “most out of life?” Jesus also said in Luke 12:15, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”
You can’t serve God and riches
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Matthew 6:24
Paul tells us that whether we live or die, we’ll magnify Christ in our life. In Phillippians 1:19-21, the author reminds us that our life has purpose: to serve God. “For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For, to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
That’s the best life: to glorify God in our mind and body, as an example of the Lord Jesus Christ. As 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” We’re also to walk in the steps of Jesus, because “He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked” (1 John 2:6).
