Are you eternally-minded? posted by John Sorensen on Nov 13, 2018

If there is a “path of least resistance,” there must be a “path of most resistance.”  When you and I received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we joined with those on the “path of most resistance.”  We joined Moses, Joshua, Jeremiah, Paul, John…and a host of others throughout the ages who have traveled this path.

Of course, the Leader on this “path of most resistance” is none other than Jesus.  He taught us –even warned us – that it would be this way for those who live in this fallen world.  Yet too often, we Christians resist the notion of being active, verbal witnesses for Jesus.

So, this challenge is before us.  It is the call to leave the “path of least resistance,” where silence is acceptable, and begin speaking up for Christ – focusing on the cross and the payment made by Jesus, so that our sins can be forgiven.

This month, we’re focused on Thankfulness, as we head into Thanksgiving.

This week, we’re talking about being eternally minded – keeping our focus on things that really matter, even in the midst of trial.

One of my favorite passages deals with this very topic—It’s 2 Corinthians 4 & 5.  Chapter 4 deals with us being of strong heart as we share Christ, and Chapter 5 encourages us to faithfully conduct ourselves as God’s ambassadors here on earth.  At the end of chapter 4, we’re reminded that we will have struggles here on earth, but don’t worry.  Even the struggles have their purpose, as we look not at the things that can be seen, but at the things that cannot be seen.  Isn’t that interesting?  We’re to look at the things that cannot be seen!

You see the things that can be seen are just temporary, but the things that cannot be seen are eternal.

I don’t know about you, but I’d like to be known as one who is eternally minded, conducting myself as God’s ambassador, making this appeal, as if on His behalf, be reconciled to God!  You know, that’s what we do when we witness.

This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit sharelife.today for tips and tools to help you be eternally minded!  Plus you can request a free copy of our “Partners in Growing” booklet that you can use with a friend to help them grow in their faith.  That’s sharelife.today.

May God richly bless you this week as you serve Him.
