Eternal Things

All of us are affected by the worldly environment that surrounds us.  As a result of this, we develop varying amounts of sensitivity to “earthy things.”  When we became “born again,” we received the capacity to know and respond to “eternal things.”  Through the working of the Holy Spirit within us, we began to understand that we are a new creation, and that we have entered a new and higher realm of life.  We learned that the purpose of the Lord is not to build up the temporal, but rather to introduce us to the eternal.
