C R Lord Articles » FromtheHeartofaServant
A BRIEF NOTE: Poetry spread out through the site is only a portion of the book "From the Heart of a Servant." You can find poetry about Jesus under the heading "Jesus," poetry about God under the heading "God" and so on. See the sidebar on the left of this page for a book linking to the publishing company.
The purpose of this entire site is that people might come here, read what God has given me and go away blessed. Whether it be for comfort, challenge or simple relaxation and reflection on the goodness and mercy of God; all are heartily welcome! It is my honest and heart-felt desire that everyone visiting here will have their real spiritual needs met!
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE!
What is most important in a person's life is determined by what world view is prominent in their thinking. There are only two world views held by everyone, and they are secular
and sacred. Everything a person believes and acts on in life comes from their world view.
The secular view has many believing that this world is all that counts, and that there is no life beyond this one. This view leaves people living for today and worried about what tomorrow might bring. Death is their enemy, and rightly so, because they are not certain that there is nothing beyond this life no matter how they try to convince themselves otherwise.
The sacred, or what is called the "religious view" believes that this life is just a time of preparation for the life to come. They are certain that this life is only temporary, and that eternal life lies ahead after death. There are many religions that can be classified under this view, but Christianity stands alone in offering Christ as the Savior who alone can deliver men from death and eternal damnation. Those who have trusted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord have no fear of death because they claim to know the one person who has the power over death.
Only one of the two views can be right. Two such conflicting views concerning life will, of necessity, clash. The thing about the decisions we make concerning this issue is that
we must live with the inevitable consequences of our decisions- whether that decision is pleasant or not!
Which of these two groups are you part of? What if a person in either view died while reading this? If the secular view is right life is permanently over! If the Christian view is right, it will be joy for them and horror for all others.
THE IMPORTANCE OF IT ALL SHOULDN'T BE MINIMIZED BY ANYONE OF EITHER GROUP! THE RAMIFICATIONS OF THE CHRISTIAN BELIEF ARE
TOO GREAT TO BE IGNORED!
