Hebrews 1:10-11 The Loooooong Haul

Hebrews 1:10-11

Life is busy. Most of us work hard to build careers, raise families, maybe buy a car or a house. The sad part is much of our labor may be for not. Say, “What?” It is worth asking, “What in my life can stand the test of time? Read the following verses from Hebrews 1:10-11

10 He also says,
In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
11 They will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment.

In truth even God's creation of the the earth according to scripture have a finite life expectancy, but God is eternal. That means anything we build on this earth will not last, but anything we store in heaven is forever. So what do I want to store in heaven? Well, my wife, kids, friends, neighbors—people. Are we living our lives for the eternal today?

Update News:
  1. This Sunday we have a breakfast for everyone at 10—come at 9:45 if you can. Our worship service this Sunday is a concert of prayer with no preaching. If you can bring a fruit dish or some pastry.
  2. Mike Lucas has agreed to start posting a Sat. devotional for me in a few weeks so the daily devotional is expanding to 6 days a week. I am trying to get him to wait a few weeks since he has badly hurt his back and should not be sitting for a few weeks—at the computer:).
  3. This coming Tuesday night we are going to have free “all-you-can-eat chili” at Wendy's by the church before Core time. If people want drinks or sandwiches that is on them, but we thought it would be a fun change up and you are invited!
