Our intimate and timeless unity with our Lord and our God is so wonderful, it infinitely overwhelms any price that is paid or any suffering that is endured in this life -- even life itself! Eternity, including the next life, is what we were designed for, a truth the Apostle Paul embraced:

我们跟上帝亲密关系,每时每刻紧密联系,十分奇妙。它不能用价钱来衡量,它胜过我们在今生所受---甚至超过生命本身!永生,包括来生,是我们所憧憬的。使徒保罗这样描述它:

[He has] raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness towards us in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6,7).

上帝让我们一起升天,他让我们在天庭跟耶稣坐在一起。在那个年代,他将向我们展示耶稣给予我们无限的慈爱和关怀。(以非所书 章节 2:6,7

For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body (Philippians 3:20,21).

因天庭子民身份,我们心怀期盼地等待我们救世主,上帝耶稣,他将让我们的肉体轮回,它可能被换成他神圣肉体( (腓立比书 3:20,21).

If you have such a perspective -- an eternal perspective -- it will be your mainspring of true hope, giving you the stamina to persevere, whatever the trial. Paul said: " ... tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope" (Romans 5: 3,4).

如果你有这样一个想法--一个永恒的想法---它将是你希望的源泉,不论你尝试什么,它给你耐力,让你坚持下去。保罗说:“逆境磨练毅力,毅力造就性格,性格决定希望”(罗马书 章节 5:3,4

However rewarding or challenging your day-to-day life is, by comparison to God's eternal purpose for us, it is but a moment, a vapor. Thank God that His plan for you is so much larger, so much more extraordinary than you can ever possibly imagine. He has, indeed, set eternity in your heart and will take infinite care that your deepest longings will be eternally fulfilled.

不论你从日常生活获得什么,不论你如何挑战你的日常生活,但是跟上帝赋予我们的永恒人生比,它只是一个瞬间,只是小巫见大巫。

感谢上帝,他的计划是如此大,如此不平凡,超乎我们的想象。实际上,他已经将永恒置于你的心中,给予无微不至的关怀,让你内心深处的渴望永恒不变地兑现。
