Everything Will Melt

world_on_fire__crop_350_webEverything that makes up the universe will burn and melt. But we look forward to what God has promised-a new heaven and a new earth-a place where everything that has God’s approval lives. II Peter 3:12b, 13 God’s Word Translation

The following is a comment by Rick Warren, author of ‘Purpose Driven Life ‘ and Pastor of Saddleback Church in California:

“People ask me, what is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body– but not the end of me. I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act – the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity. We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn’t going to make sense.”

Life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever…here.
