Do you ever look around this world and find it lacking? When we put our hope in this world, our soul will never be satisfied. C.S. Lewis once said, “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”

I’ve been in a season lately where God has been giving me an eternal perspective. It’s like I’m homesick and thinking more often of my heavenly destiny. I find myself asking, "What really matters, looking through the lens of eternity? What if I could see what God sees? Would I have the same priorities? Am I storing up more treasures in heaven than I’m storing up on this earth?"

I love this promise that God gives us in 2 Corinthians 4:17: For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison.

Glory beyond all comparison! Having that eternal perspective means I don’t put too much stock in temporal things. It also makes me more determined to make the most of this short time we have on this planet. We are here for a purpose: to share Jesus with others and show how HE can change their lives. And not just change their lives on this earth but change their eternal destiny. That’s what gets me out of bed in the morning!

WCIC is committed to sharing the hope that transcends the problems of this world. The hope that points us to eternity with Him. Isn’t that the good news that everyone needs? That through Christ, we can have life change now and eternal glory later.

WCIC's fall fundraiser is October 6-9. Would you consider being a part of sharing that hope with others? WCIC is a listener-supported station, and your gift is making an eternal difference in so many lives. We couldn’t do it without you!

But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city. - Hebrews 11:16
