This World Is Not Our Home!
I liked the video above that Francis Chan does about the balance beam illistration.
Realizing how much time that we will be spending on earth makes it so much easier to figure out what is essential in life and what is not!
It is so important to get an eternal perspective on life to understand what your life is all about!
We live in this world for approximately up to 70 or more years. When you look at it that way, this time on earth is comparatively nothing compared to eternity.
Make sure you know where you are spending eternity because that is a very, very long time! ~ Bill Greguska

Francis Chan Shares About His Younger Years!
A little of my background – my mom died giving birth to me. My dad remarried, and then my step-mom died when I was nine in a car accident.
I’ve got to focus on the next life… and it’s hard to keep up that perspective because of the pressure, but one thing that helps me is realizing that there will be no cowards in heaven. – Francis Chan
Francis Chan Shares Some Of His Wisdom
Pastor Francis Chan explained that continually listening to the Word without applying it has made Christians’ ears dull to God’s call.
“That’s the first thing I was taught in seminary before we even started classes, was that the president of the school said, ‘Look, be careful because once you can hear the word of God and do nothing in response then the next time you hear it, it’ll get easier, and the next time, and pretty soon it becomes a habit and a pattern of your ability to hear the Word of God without a practical response,'” said Chan.
“That’s a very dangerous place to be, and yet, man, that’s happening. Every church across this nation, we’ve fallen into that pattern.”
The solution, Chan stated, is to act. “Why not assume action? Why do you hear a verse and assume I shouldn’t do something in response to that unless the Lord is stopping you?”
Chan acknowledges in You and Me Together that some Christians “are paralyzed by a fear of failure.” Others, he shared, are afraid that living out God’s word means depriving themselves of happiness.
“Scripture says that [God’s] commands led to life and I think everyone’s so afraid to obey His commands because they’re scared that if we obey this, this is going to make us miserable, and there’s no reward it in it,” said Chan.
Christians, he said, need to tap into their faith.

“Christians are like manure: spread them out, and they help everything grow better, but keep them in one big pile, and they stink horribly.” ~ Francis Chan
Matthew 28:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
