To truly know myself, I must know God. Now all of us at some point or another have a tendency to focus on ourselves.
The values and ideals that society and the world aspire to are but dust in the wind. They exist only for a moment and then “poof”! They are gone. Well it seems KANSAS got it right with their song – Dust in the wind “I close my eyes; only for a moment then the moments gone. All my dreams – pass before my eyes a curiosity. Dust in the wind; all they are is dust in the wind.” ……
Now here’s the point. Things may be gone in a moment but the consequences of those moments remain. They are eternal and long lasting. WE have to live with the consequences of the decisions we make.
Here is some good news. Everyone’s sins will be paid for. They will be paid for either by ourselves or by Jesus. And to know Jesus is to know how to live in this fallen world (Proverbs 3: 5 thru 7) – because in the end, the Christ who came once is the same Christ who will come again.
