Make Every Effort

Every Sunday we gather here for worship with our minds and hearts filled with the concerns and challenges of the past week and the week ahead. We live our days filled with temporal concerns. Our daily bread and daily needs consume our thoughts and our time and our energies. But how are we different from non-Christians? Are they not also anxious about their days and their lives and livelihoods? As Christians we are called to a higher calling, we are called to live in two worlds at once, to have a foot in two countries, to have one eye on temporal things and one eye on eternal things. The challenge, the goal, is to attend to the temporal things of our lives our eyes and minds fixed on eternal things. Jesus did this while He took on human form and walked this earth.
