Can I accomplish anything here on Earth that would add to my life in Heaven? No. Heaven is so abundantly greater than anything I could ever imagine or hope for. Any accomplishment here on Earth is like trash, hardly worthy to be compared with the riches of Heaven. So, if I can accomplish nothing here, then why should I stay here? Why should I keep on living, if all life is is pain and suffering. Being a Christian is so incredibly hard in this world of ours. Indeed, Paul was correct in saying, “To die is gain.” But God has a purpose for every Christian. Paul’s purpose was to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles and pastor them. Who’s to say I don’t have a similar calling? To die may be gain, but I continue to live so that I might serve the Christ here on Earth.
