Sunday's Words of Encouragement September 14, 2014

I will call Pastor’s Sermon today: “Living With a View to Eternity.” (As part of choir we sometimes come in a few moments into the Sermon so I might miss the real title if he gives one.)

Pastor noted that what we focus on is what we become or what is important to us. Are you focused on earning money for material things? Are you focused on retirement, laying back to relax? Are you focused inwardly or outwardly? Are you focused on things of this world or on eternity? We need to learn to count things of this world as loss and things of eternity as gain. Philippians 3:7-11.  Though we are living on earth, our true home is heaven. We need to press on for the promised prize. V12-14. V15 All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things.

 I looked for a song about pressing on.
I was surprised to find this song which was written by Bob Dylan in 1980.

Verses for Today:
Philippians 3:7-11(NIV)
7 But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.

Lord, I thank you and praise you. I  pray for help to stay focused on eternity and help to press on to the gift of salvation that Christ has secured for me.
