You can have the most exiting and meaningful life with God. Jesus is calling people, and one day when we stand before His throne, we will all know that the real adventure on earth was to follow Him and do His will.
Eternity is reality. Heaven is more real than this world. Paul, John and Peter were all motivated by eternity. They knew that God wanted souls to be saved. And they risked everything in their lives so that they might be well received by their wonderful King and Savior.
In this life there is no greater joy than to walk with Him and know than you are doing His will!
