“By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust and to dust you shall return” Genesis 3:19
This verse comes from the book of Genesis as God was removing them from the Garden of Eden. A reminder we have been created and in the end we will return to the earth.
So while our mortal bodies have this limitation, we see in Jesus Christ we are destined for something much more. We are destined for eternal life with our God in heaven. In the meantime, we are to live as God calls us to live. To live as one’s who are worthy of such a destiny. To live as examples of Jesus Christ to others in the world, so that all may come to know him.
Then, in our end, we join with the saints in the presence of our Lord.
