While our focus in all we do should be on the eternal, we should not lose sight of what God wants us to accomplish in this life. In Matthew 22:32 Jesus quotes from when God spoke to Moses through the burning bush in Exodus 3:6 , “I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.” Our eternal life after this earthly life should always be our focus, but let us not forget why we are here; to be used by God in bringing people into a personal relationship with Him and for His glory.
