Rick Warren - Leave a Lasting Legacy
I have no doubt that some of you are discouraged. And you feel like giving up on on your job, or your dream, or that prayer that's been unanswered. Don't give up! Faith is believing when I don't see it, obeying what I don't understand it, and persisting when I don't feel like it.
If you put your trust in Christ, you're gonna spend trillions of years in eternity with no more sorrow, no more sadness, no more sickness, no more suffering. When you put your hand in God's, he grasped onto it and he's never letting go. There may be times you'd like to let go, but he's never letting go. You are eternally secure.
Now, you've heard me say many times, you know, "You can't take it with you", but you can send it on ahead. And there's no greater investment than the Kingdom of God. God wants to use you, he wants to bless you, he wants to do amazing things in your life. He wants you to be a world changer. You just need to stop saying, "I can't".
One day your heart will stop beating, that will be the end of your body. It's not gonna be the end of you. How much you investing in eternity?
