Let’s look at 2 Corinthians through the Temporal or Eternal lenses – Part 2

 2 Corinthians 4:18b the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

  1. Temporal – being self-centered or Eternal – To my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I say: However, Whenever, Wherever and Whatever You ask me to do, my answer in advance is yes! I desire to obey all the commands of Jesus and the apostles in His Word. Wherever You lead and whatever the cost, I’m ready: Anytime. Anywhere. Anyway. Whatever it takes Lord! I want to be used by You in such a way, that on that final day I’ll hear You say “Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Come on in and let the eternal party begin.” 
  2. The Disciple must decide every day and moment whether to focus in pride on Temporal things and self or spiritual Eternal things and Jesus.
  3. Temporal – I earned the money and I can spend it any way I want to or Eternal – Grace giving is multiplied providing the opportunity for increased giving and for thankfulness to God from the beneficiaries of our gifts.
  4. Are any of your troubles “thorns in the flesh” to keep you humble? If so are you being bitter – Temporal or thankful – Eternal?
  5. Who or what do you turn to when faced with the facts and problems of life? Either to Temporal – self-pity, bitterness, depression, drugs, wine, and others or Eternal – God for comfort, strength, wisdom, and guidance.
