Set Goals That Carry Eternal Weight
– by Grant & Theunisina Neyt
Happy and blessed 2019 from all of us at Evangelism and Fire Ministries. Each year, at this time of the year, there is an expectation of what the new year will bring. Goals are set, resolutions are made.
We know that we are nearer to the return of Christ than ever before. When we realise this many of our goals and resolutions take on new meaning; they have eternal meaning. “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.” – John 4:35-36. These Scriptures give us a key to setting goals and resolutions that carry eternal weight. When we apply these goals and resolutions we are gathering “fruit for eternal life”. We partner with Christ to change the lives and eternal destinies of those we bring to Christ, and our very own lives and eternal destinies are changed.
