Life is a vapor.
Life is short,
Life is like a fleeting bird,
It’s like a hurried dream.
Life is too short to give in to sin.
Life is too short to reject God.
Life is too short to give up in defeat.
Live your life to the fullest.
Please God with the time you have.
Do his will and delight in his good pleasure.
“James 4:14 (KJV) Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”
Living you life with the understanding that life is a vapor will guide you in the right direction. You will live with a purpose knowing that this life is short and fleeting. This is the reason to please God with the time we have. Pleasing God and doing his will is the most productive activity you can spend your time on Earth doing.
To be honest with you, pleasing God is what would make you most happy and satisfied. For in doing his will, we all find joy and fulfilment. That’s the way we were made, that’s the nature of our creation. No man can do without God and know true success. No man belittles God and attains fulfilment. Our lives, like springs, are connected to a source – God ,and anyone who detaches himself from the source will only find himself to blame. Drought is the portion of such person.
Life is short, Eternity is long. Compared to eternity, life is just like a fleeting second. Understanding this should help you put things (choices, decisions) into perspective. With whom do you want to spend eternity? With God? If yes, you need to be in right terms with him. You need to please him, not by your efforts, but by your acceptance of his Son – JESUS.
Without doubt, life is too hard without help. Life is too harsh without Jesus on your side. He has promised everyone who believes in him this:
“Matthew 28:20 (KJV) …….. and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
This promise is soothing, reassuring and powerful. Jesus Christ has promised to be with every true believer through all challenges, problems, victories and disappointment, even till the end of the age.
Therefore, what greater way is there to spend life than to love Jesus? What greater way to pass through this world than to do God’s will?
You can please him in several ways.
You can please him in your decisions.
You can please him by accepting the his Son.
You can please him by sharing his love
You can please him by spreading the good news of how he raised up his son for the sake of sinners.
You can please him by walking in his will and seeking his good pleasure.
In every situation you find yourself, there’s always a decision that pleases God. Please choose that.
So my brothers and sisters obey God even though it is hard, please him even though you’re scorned. Please him even though the world would hate you for it. Please him because life is short and eternity is long. Please him because you want to reign with Christ forever. I hope you make the right choice today.
If you’ve not given your life to Christ Jesus. Ask him to forgive your sins, tell him you won’t go back to them and ask him to give you a new life. Tell him you will live to please him for the remainder of your days. Nothing is better than the life he gives. Absolutely nothing!
