Just like you, I long to live my life well! To INVEST it wisely.
Whether I realize it or not, I am investing my life in something. It could be my family, my work, my dreams, money, comfort. At the end of my life, what I have invested in will become evident. Just like the statement on a bank account, my life will reveal what I have invested it in.
Will I have invested it in something worthy? or in temporary gain? Time will tell. I already wish I had done MORE - I have spent too much time on temporary things. I have allowed too many fears to hold me back.
But it is never too late! I know that there are two things from this earth that are eternal. That last forever. The Word of God - and people.
Will I invest 2017 in the Word of God and people? If I do, those investments will last into eternity.
I want to spend a few weeks with you exploring HOW we can invest time in the two things that will last into eternity.
1. How do I invest time in His word?
2. How do I invest in people?
Jesus said in John 17:4, "I glorified You on earth, having accomplished the work that You gave Me to do." How I long to be able to say those words at the end of my life! I have spent most of my adult life trying to figure out what He wants to accomplish through me.
I want to share how I study God's word - and how He has been working in my life to show me the work He wants me to accomplish. Join me for the next few weeks - and ask God to allow you to INVEST this year, 2017, in the work that He has for you!
What is holding you back?
