    How long with eternity be for the unbeliever and for the believer?

    Ecclesiastes 3:11 says God “set eternity in the hearts of men.” Every human soul has a God-given awareness that there’s “something more” than this world.

    As one who is seeking to live on purpose for God, I should be concerned that my life draws others to Christ.

    As a follower of Christ, who desires to live on purpose, I want to yield daily to the Holy Spirit, so I might prayerfully look to God’s Word to apply God’s wisdom and walk in God’s will.

It was titled, “How America Has Run Out of Time,” and the opening lines say it all: “If you have a moment to read this story with your feet up, free of interruption, at ...read more
