You are on the road to eternity!

(Thomas Boston, “Death”)

“For I know that You will bring me to death, and to the house appointed for all living.” Job 30:23

If you are in Christ, you may well bear your trials.

Death will put an end to all your troubles!

If a man on a journey is not well accommodated, where he lodges only for a night–he will not trouble himself much about the matter; because he is not to stay there, it is not his home.

You are on the road to eternity!

Let it not distress you that you meet with some hardships in the ‘inn of this world’.

Fret not, because it is not so well with you as with some others. One man travels with an expensive polished cane in his hand; his fellow traveler, perhaps, has but a common staff or stick: either of them will serve the turn. It is no great matter which of them is yours; both will be laid aside when you come to your journey’s end.

  1. I like what you are saying…. I worry sometimes though that the idea of eternal life being only a future thing might mean we fail to experience the eternal life that begins the moment we invite Christ into our lives…

    • Hi. Sorry for the LATE response — I’ve been off my computer more or less for the past month. I’m just now getting back into the swing of things.

      As to eternal life, this is how I understand it. In these flesh bodies, it’s a done deal — we’re going to die. However, our soul does not die for at the moment of our redemption, we have been given eternal life. I’m not sure looking at experiencing eternal life is the way to look at it — I look at it more as experiencing the relationship with God that we did not have before being redeemed.

      Thanks for your comments.

      On another note, I did not write this devotional. These are devotionals from preachers of days gone by and are now in the public domain. I’m just sharing them. 🙂
