Your life matters because your life is eternal. Our bodies are like tents that are temporary or momentary. But God has put eternity in our hearts, and He calls us to fix our eyes not on what is seen, or on what is temporary, but on what is unseen and eternal. Either death will destroy us eternally, or Jesus will destroy death for us eternally. When we believe in Jesus, trust Him with our lives, and commit to follow Him in complete surrender, He forgives our past, empowers our present, and secures our future. Are we ready for that day? Are we ready for eternity?
