Learn to hold onto this present life with a loose grip. Be careful not to be lulled into believing the best is here and now. For the believer in Jesus Christ, this world cannot compare to what comes after this life. Live your present life with joy, not because of any stuff of this earth, but because you possess eternal life in Christ.
Rather spend the rest of your days in this world learning to be consumed with Christ. Let go of the temporary and grasp onto that which is eternal. Christ is your life. Be consumed with Him. Invest in knowing Him, loving Him, and serving Him.
The apostle Paul was consumed with Christ (Philippians 1:21). He determined that his life here on earth was to be invested in the things of God. Paul prepared for heaven by laying aside all else for the cause of Jesus, His Savior.
Do shiny things of the world still catch your eye? Begin turning over your worldly desires to the Master. Candidly tell Him about what attracts you away from Him. Then yield your attractions to Christ. Let Him woo your heart with His word.
