LTLM Videocast #8 - Living for Eternity

We are given life by God and are on this earth for a very short time. All that takes place in this life directly impacts our eternity and the eternities of others.

It can be easy to focus on the “here and now” and what we can see in this life because we live in a world that focuses on this life because they do not know Jesus and don’t have hope of anything past this life! But the Lord calls us to know the deep purpose of living this life for Him and eternity - the life to come!

Join Amy as she takes you to a graveyard as we consider the importance of living our lives in light of eternity!

2 Cor. 4:18, “…We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

Encouraging Siblings in Seeking Christ

We were blessed to hear about what the Lord lead these two sisters to do in encouraging their brothers in pursuing Christ. We encourage you to consider doing something similar with your siblings!

"We were so excited when we found out LTLM was hosting a Bible challenge this summer. Since the goal of reading and memorizing God's Word is wonderful for anyone - not just young ladies - we invited our three brothers to join us for the summer pursuit. They each invited other young men they know to be their accountability partners, and they encouraged one another in manliness and in God's Word. We were thrilled to have them join us in this mutual summer goal, and for their prize, we sisters made them a special dinner and dessert, and cards exhorting them in their journey seeking the Lord.

As the pursuit neared its end, since all of us enjoyed the pursuit so much, we decided that we would host another "pursuit" this fall so we all could continue seeking the Lord together. Again, our brothers have joined us in our fall quest, with new accountability partners.

It's been so exciting to seek the Lord together as sisters, siblings, as a family, and with godly friends! This quest to know the Lord better will never end and will span into eternity when we all bow unitedly before Christ's throne praising Him forever! Why don't you make a challenge for all of your siblings to do in the coming month(s)? May we seek His face every day and every minute He gives us! "My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times." (Psalm 119:20)"
