Philippians 3:20

"What we do in life echoes in eternity." Opening Scene of the Gladiator as they are about to ride out into war. "Hold the line! Stay with me! If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!" How many Christians have the same hope and eagerness of Heaven as this man had of "Elysium," which was only a false hope? "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;" ~ Philippians 3:20 "If you read history you will find that the Christians who did the most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this." C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
