Life is Fleeting

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Life is Fleeting”

In these next several weeks I will be presiding over a couple of memorial services. And these times are never easy. As a pastor, I have a multifaceted purpose, and that is to bring comfort to those who mourn, and hope to all those who attend.

But it is in what the is brought out in Ecclesiastes that has the most significance as to my purpose.

In Ecclesiastes 7:2 it says, “Better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for that is the end of all men; and the living will take it to heart.”

It is at these times that people are the most receptive of their mortality.

The Apostle James said, “You do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” (James 4:14)

King David said, “Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath” (Psalm 39:4-5)

But we need to not only tell people that life is fleeting, but that there is more to this life, and that is, eternal life. But the question is, where will we spend it?

And this is where we need to bring the hope of the gospel message of Jesus Christ, that He is the only way to heaven and an eternity with God.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Therefore, since we don’t know how much longer we have to live, shouldn’t we be telling others of this message that while life is fleeting, eternity is waiting for all those who come to faith in Jesus Christ.
