We Must Stop Using Mortality to Empower Us for Eternal Purposes

a man looking up to the heavens, we must stop using our mortality to empower for eternal power

Let’s reframe our mortality by using it to empower us for eternal purposes. Let’s seize every day as God’s gift to be employed for his glory and the good of others. Let’s love our Lord and our neighbor with passion and service (Mark 12:30-31). If we do, we’ll experience the transforming presence of Christ and the abundant life he alone can give (John 10:10).

And, because of the new culture-wide push for sports gambling, Friday morning may bring quite the hangover.
