People are greatly interested in popularity, fame, and wealth. However, those are neither perfect nor eternal. They are fleeting and as such, aren’t worth staking your life. But the eternal God has promised to give you eternal blessings. How can you earnestly hold onto the eternal covenant?
1. You Must Enjoy the Eternal Spiritual Truth
When you know the eternal spiritual facts and confess in faith, you will enjoy answers that transcend time and space. First, they are the works of the Triune God. (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) Second, it is the background of Heaven. Third, unbelievers suffer because of their background of Hell. Fourth, Satan, the devil, causes deception. (Matthew 25:41) Fifth, angels serve God’s children. (Hebrews 1:14 and Rev 8:3~5) Sixth, the body is temporary, but the soul is eternal. Seventh, the church which is the body of Christ is also eternal.
2. You Must Enjoy Your Eternal Status, Authority, and Crown
God chose you and called you as His child. (eternal status) You did not seek it, but you have received eternal authority which was poured down from above. That is why you can utilize the authority of Jesus Christ. The souls whom you evangelized, (1 Thessalonians 2:19) the end of the earth, (Matthew 24:14) and the evangelist's reward are your eternal crown.
The eternal God has called you to enjoy eternal blessings. There is nothing as foolish as trusting in your own abilities or relying on others. Giving your all, (All In) enjoying everything, (All Out), and saving everything (All Change) are the conclusion of the eternal mission.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, help me to restore the grace of enjoying the first, last, and eternal mission together in the field.

[Deep Questions] Q. What Is Eternal?
No matter how great an inheritance you leave to the posterity, if the Gospel is not relayed,
the next generation will die.
No one will escape from the path of destruction.
Even though you did your best studying, (success)
if you are spiritually ignorant and powerless,
then one day, spiritual problems will draw near
that cannot be solved by money or your parents.
In the end, you’ll never be able to solve them.
Only the irresistible grace that the eternal God has given you
and His blessing of calling you as His child are perfect and complete.
“Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word! Bless the LORD, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!” (Psalms 103:20 and 22)
