Eternity Changes Everything

Eternity changes everything
Our view of the future affects how we feel and act in the present. Stephen Witmer excites us about where the world is heading, gives certainty about where we as individuals are heading, and thrills us about how eternity really does change everything in our daily lives.
If you are worried about your future… or if your future doesn’t seem to make any difference to your now… or if you simply want to get more excited about where you will spend eternity… read this book!

  1. Your future in your present
  2. Everything new
  3. He will dwell with them
  4. The future is certain
  5. Your future is certain
  6. Tightrope walking
  7. Restlessness
  8. Patience
  9. Heavenly citizens
  10. Needing this world less
  11. Loving this world more
The central point of this book is that the Christian life is like walking on a tightrope on the way to a new creation.  We trust in God's timing while we wait patiently for the fulfillment of His promises, that would be eternal life with Him in heaven.

As we wait here in the "world" for what the author calls the "new creation" we are to be content and patient, eagerly serving our Lord as we wait for the prize.  The author speaks of restlessness, that being aligning our identities, our thoughts and actions and goals on what lies ahead for us as Christians.   In other words, we don't get stuck on "worldly" things, we look to the future.

Basically we live either in the past, in the present, or we are looking toward the future.  We must keep that in mind as we live the life we live here on earth. 

Mr. Witmer has done a great job with these questions and how to think about our future, and what to prepare for.
