DevotionsThe Christian and earthly threats

Luke 12:16-20

16 And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’

18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’

20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’

👉The thought of death frightens many people. But believers have no reason to fear. Jesus’ empty tomb proves that there is life after the physical body is gone.

👉Unbelievers who dread their demise have two different approaches to life.

👉 One group piles up wealth, good deeds, or worldly success in the hope of passing it on to their children. They expect to ‘live on’ in the memories of those who benefit from their hard work. But it is the rare person who is still remembered a few generations later. And none truly live on.

👉The other group chooses to laugh in the face of death. Their philosophy is ‘Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die’ (1 Cor. 15:32). Their existence seems pleasurable from the outside, but can you imagine a more futile way to live your life?

👉God does not intend for humanity to pass the time with such meaninglessness.

👉 Here is the key to significance: fulfilling our unique, God-given, eternal purpose.

👉In this life, Christians do not labour to leave a physical legacy or waste our days pursuing pleasure. Instead, we influence our culture, reach out to the lost and help the needy. And when a believer enters heaven, he or she keeps on enjoying the presence of God.

👉For the believer, death is not a fearsome end. It is the doorway to a new life of serving the Lord in heaven. Our days on earth are just the beginning of our existence; they will seem like only a few minutes compared to an eternity spent in God’s presence.

👉 Note: Christians must hold fast to their faith because deadly persecutions are everywhere in the world now, even in countries less expected. Do you know that holding a Bible or quoting from it is an offence in Finland? The New Age Movement coupled with Luciferianism does everything within its reach to silence Christians and the Bible. Death threats are everywhere against Christians. But, do not give up, God is in control. Our destiny is sure.
