Consider Eternal Life From God Now, Not Later

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Oh, there's so much to do, so many resolutions, so many plans! However, one thing we should take into consideration: as we start in a new year, where is my life leading to?

Although there are so many things to do in this world, we have so little time to do everything. When we were children, we can only do something with our parents with us or with our parents' permission. When we become old, we can do things only with the help of someone who's of a younger generation. Our only true time to do somthing with our life is during those precious years of youth...

These are the lyrics of a song from a movie involving immortal beings:

If we live in this world without receiving eternal life from God, where will our life end up? We will lose everything when we die. Everything that we've worked for, who will get it? All of our life, without seeking God, if we just live day to day, we will fear that coming day of judgment.

However, if we prepare, we will be joyful to meet that day. Let us prepare for Father's coming now, not later. As it is written:

Eccl. 12:1 Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, "I find no pleasure in them"
