Living On The Edge Of Eternity

Living On The Edge Of Eternity by Keith Cook

"Whoever speaks, let him speak as it were the utterances of God. Whoever serves let him do so by the strength that God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen." 1 Peter 4:11

As you think about this passage, you must remember that these scriptures were written by Peter hundreds of years ago. He had a message from God, a fresh word for his generation. I believe that every generation needs men and women who live their lives as if they are living on the edge of eternity. They are men and women of passion - real champions for God! They boldly share God's message of salvation as if today was their last day on this earth.

I have come to the following conclusions about those who are living on the edge of eternity. Every person that I have met who has an "on the edge" mentality has, to a varying degree, most of the following spiritual and motivational attributes.

1. Those living on the edge of eternity know the lessons of past history and have learned from them.

2. They also demonstrate the life-changing power of God to their present culture.

3. When they face the future they do so with hope and expectation.

4. Their focus in life is to have a clear and urgent message to share in their daily lives.

5. Those living on the edge of eternity are galvanized by the ever-present supernatural power of the Holy Spirit.

6. Their attitude is permeated with the "mind of Christ" and they know what God wants them to do because they are communicating with Him in a regular time of personal Bible study and prayer.

7. Most importantly, those living on the edge of eternity are proactive in their service to God's kingdom. (Proactive is defined as "acting in advance to deal with an expected difficulty". Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

Instead of reacting to circumstances, public opinion, or crisis, these men and women deliberately choose to act on what Jesus told them to do in their quiet time. Their quiet time with the Lord empowers them to act with purpose and confidence.

Decide today to "live life on the edge"!

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that God will empower your quiet time with Him and will enable you to respond obediently with purpose and confidence.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Joan Cook's "Women On The Go" Ministries. Joan's "Women On The Go" programs are implemented at women's conferences, local churches, retreats, and separate stand-alone events. God has given her a burden to minister to and encourage women in their walk with the Lord. Pray for Joan as she ministers and shares from her heart and as she presents motivational, evangelistic programs, materials, and leadership to and for women that will challenge and motivate them to a deeper walk with the Lord.
