Full Text: The Goal Worth Dying For
Life Is Short, Then You Die
It’s estimated that around 107 people in the world die every single minute. That’s 154,080 people every single day. One of these days, it will be you. No one wants to think about it, but that doesn’t change the inevitable. You’re on a fast, one-way street to your final destination, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. In less than 75 years it will be over, and there’s no reset button. Not only that, but you won’t be gone long before you’re completely forgotten. Death leaves even the most famous of people lost to obscurity. Are you living only for today, with no thought about eternity? What is your goal in life?
Maybe your goal in life is PLEASURE, and your motto is something like “eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die!” Maybe your plan is to enjoy all you can: eat all you can, drink all you can, get as high as you can, have all the sex you can, and laugh all you can. But where is this leading you? How long does the pleasure really last? Like the grave, your lusts will never be satisfied. After you’ve exhausted the strength of your youth, after your hair has fallen out or turned gray, and your skin has sagged and wrinkled, and your passions have grown old like your body, what will be left but a few fading, empty memories, whispering, “What was the use?” Sadly, too many trade a few moments of pleasure for a lifetime of grief, regret, and pain. How much greater a tragedy to trade those few moments for an eternity of the same.
Maybe your goal is POSSESSIONS, to get all you can, to make loads of cash to buy all you can, a nice house and cars and clothes. But show me the house that hasn’t fallen apart, the car that hasn’t been wrecked or rusted, and the clothes that haven’t faded and worn out. Not only will all these things wear out, but your love for all these things will wear out long before they do. Howard Hughes, once one of the richest men in the world, reportedly died a billionaire, holed up in a hotel room, collecting his urine, eating only ice cream, with fingernails like bird’s claws. What will all your stuff do for you when you’re gasping for your last breath? We all leave this world the same way we entered it, empty handed.
Maybe your goal is POPULARITY or fame, to be loved by people. This selfie-filled life will grow old almost as fast as your phone will. Take a walk through any cemetery, where all the once rich and famous lie buried in the same ground as the “nobodies”. How quickly someone else took their place, and their success and fame are just a distant memory. John Lennon once said, “We’re more popular than Jesus now, I don’t know which will go first—rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity.” A few short years later and rock ‘n’ roll is dead, and in a few more years almost no one will know who John Lennon was. But the name of Jesus still remains. In just two or three generations your name will be lost forever along with the faceless, forgotten multitudes who have gone before you. In the end, on the last Day, God will bring this world to a close. And on that Day, everything that was not done for His Son will burn. All the rich and famous and mighty people of this world will bow down before Jesus Christ. In the End, He will be the only Famous One.
The Goal Worth Living For
There is only one GOAL in life that ends in success – to live for God and love Him supremely. He alone is worthy of living for! God made us for Himself, not for ourselves. A life lived for Him and with Him is a life that ends in unimaginable joy. Your goals and ambitions that leave God out of the picture will one day leave you hollow and empty. When you live your life pursuing your ambitions, ignoring your Creator, you are bound for a miserable end. The only thing that will follow you into eternity will be the guilt of your sins and rejection of God and His Son, Jesus Christ, whose only ambition in life was to please His Father. He alone can truly satisfy. The only ambition in life worth living for is one that’s worth dying for – to live a life pleasing to God. And what pleases Him is faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, trusting that He alone can save you from rebellion against your Creator.
What Excuse Will You Give?
“All that is in the world, the lust of the flesh (PLEASURES), the lust of the eyes (POSSESSIONS), and the boastful pride of life (POPULARITY) is not from the Father, but is from the world. And the world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:16-17). “…whoever loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matthew 16:25b). All those that live this life for themselves and for what they want will have to answer to God for why they rejected Him and His desire for their lives. God has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through His Son. What excuse will you give?
