Our Mortality - A reminder of Eternity

We find ourselves in the midst of a pandemic as a disease we know as Coronavirus or COVID-19 has gripped the globe with fear and stricken many. As Christians, what are we to consider in these troubling times? The answer may be surprising to many. Christians should be considering today what they should always consider in each season of life and at all times: Eternity. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 gives us the understanding that our focus should always be on things eternal. "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal." As we see the world waking up to the reality of mortality we should be steadfast in hope as we have our hearts, souls, mind, and strength fixated on eternity.

The world is being reminded of the awful consequences of sin through disease and death. Men, it seems, despite their best efforts, are mortal. We face death daily. A Christian, like Paul, should "die daily", mortify the deeds of the flesh, think of the judgement that awaits before the throne of God. The thought of our own sinfulness should drive us to the arms of the Savior we so desperately need. Does it? Do the eternal consequences presented by our mortality give us a heart full of contrition? or do they simply brush by a seared conscience.

With this present reminder of mortality, men are in a season where they may see the Gospel in a new light. Perhaps we as Christians should see the Gospel in a new light as well. We may need this reminder to share the answer to sin and mortality, Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, the Messiah, the Prince of Peace. The same Christ who has redeemed us with His precious blood will bear the sins of many. These men and women need the Gospel just as we do. Are we ready in this time to comfort the sick and brokenhearted with the love of Christ? Let us consider eternity, our own and theirs.
