It occurs to me that most of us have to grapple with a change in life style as we go from being in school to being in the work force. We have to make a change from constant learning to productive doing. The focus is remarkably different.
In a similar way, all of us who know of God should begin to make adjustments in how we live in a world all but devoid of God, to an existence centered on God. What’s important to most today, primarily externals and temporals, will most likely not be the focus when we’re in the direct presence of God.
I wonder if the change from this world to the next will be even more stark than the change we encountered going from education to work? How might we prepare now to lessen the shock? Jesus said that John was the most righteous among men and the least in the Kingdom. Wow! I have a long way to go.
