“I think of our lives in terms of a dot and a line, signifying two phases. Our present life on earth is the dot. It begins. It ends. It’s brief. However, from the dot, a line extends that goes on forever. That line in eternity, which Christians will spend in heaven.
Right now, we’re living in the dot. But what are we living for? The short-sighted person lives for the dot. The person with perspective lives for the line. This earth, and our time here, is the dot. Our beloved Bridegroom, the coming wedding, the Great Reunion, and our eternal home in the New Heavens and the New Earth . . . they’re all on the line. – Randy Alcorn (Money, Possessions and Eternity)
As Christians, we must live for the line and not the dot.
