Setting the Stage for the AfterLife

So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.- Romans 8:8

The Lord invites us to die now to the flesh and rise new in the spirit.

I am reminded of the young man next door. Not a day passes that he doesn't simonize his vehicle. He will spend hours beautifying the outside. Sometimes I wonder do he ever pay attention to the mechanism under the hood. There seems to be no concern to systems that make the car function correctly. When there is a sudden failure in the vehicle then it he will become interest in systems that make the car function properly. It is a liitle too late now since he should had spend less time beautitying and more time on preventive maintenance.

Many times we spend too much time forcing on the physical body and yet we are spiritually dead. The physical body will fade away to its returning orignal form. Remember that your spirit is eternal and when it become seperated from the body it will end up in one of the two places. It is very simple either in heaven or hell. , A polished soul shines on forever and a careless soul will have a dull ending. While there is still time repent and accept Christ as your personal savior.

Prepare to meet thy God.- Amos 4:12

What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world yet forfeits his soul in hell? Good post, May.

Hello May:)

When I read your lovely post with a wonderful comparison, my thought immediately remembered the quote which Chin chin has quoted.

So I have come up with another quote which reads something like this: Remember Jesus said, IT IS EASY FOR A CAMEL TO ENTER THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE THAN FOR A RICH MAN TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

I agree with you fully. Most of us are more concerned with our external beauty than taking care of our soul. This is essentially because the world gives importance to external beauty. Miss Universe, Miss world competitions are cases in point.Similarly for men, there is Mr.Universe contest.

But then as you rightly pointed out this body of ours is only temporary or for that matter beauty is not lasting.Those who cultivate the soul, nourish it and take care of it will find favour with God and inherit heaven with eternal bliss and everlasting happiness.

I also take this opportunity to congratulate you on receiving the beautiful SISTERHOOD AWARD.

Best wishes May:)
