Hedging Your Bet
If, in the manner of men, I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me? If the dead do not rise, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!”
I Corinthians 15:32 NKJV
The way in which I live reveals what I really believe about eternity. If I don’t really believe there is an eternity, or I’m not quite sure, then I will use this life to satisfy myself. If I am confident in Jesus’ promises, I am very willing to sacrifice this life for the sake of eternity.
What does my life reveal about my confidence in eternity? Am I hedging my bets? Am I getting what I can for myself now just in case this is all there is? Or am I willing to give it all for eternity? An honest look at my own actions reveals my confidence in eternity.
Jesus, May my life speak of confidence in You and preparation for eternity.
