I see that the most significant point that needs to be negotiated in this life is the primary question of faith in God. Is eternity real, and what should be our response to it? If we choose to believe the bible, we still have to negotiate what to do about the lordship of Jesus Christ, in all the areas of our contemporary living.
No human is an accident of nature. Or force of nature, as we may wish to flatter ourselves. The sober reality is that each of us has been honored with a part in this enterprise of earth life. Paul, the author of the letter to Ephesians, calls it an inheritance obtained in Christ. We have an inheritance in time, and into eternity, if we will confront the challenges of our environment with values, purposeful living, and faith in Jesus Christ.
