What's Done for Christ Will Last!

"Only one life twill soon be passed

Only what’s done for Christ will last

How true that short little phrase is! Powerful!
Matthew 6:19-20 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal."

1 Corinthians 3:14-15 "If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire."

Revelation 8:7-8 "The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, and these were thrown upon the earth. And a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up. The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood."

Hebrews 13:14 "For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come."

That is a sweet quote that has been used a lot lately. Just so everyone knows, it was originally said by a missionary to India, China, and the Congo named CT Studd.

Thanks for the info...did he write that in a book or something?

Piper's mom had it hanging on the wall when he was growing it's in his kitchen:)

Later bro!
