Fleeting, passing quickly, brief. Like a fleeting emotion or thought. Blink of the eye and the moment has passed.
1 Corinthians 15:51-53 – “(51) But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! (52) It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. (53) For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.”
It is important for us to remember that this world is a temporary place. We are eternal beings and the goal for believers is eternity with Christ. While we are not to forsake what Christ called us to do here, speak the Gospel, we need to hold on to the hope of our faith. The Bible speaks about the futility of believing for only this world. And considering current political events, futility puts it mildly. Hearts are heavy because of what is going on the world today. We should be concerned, But, this too shall pass. Believers who hold on to the hope in Christ, pray for the salvation of others and focus on showing the love of Christ to others are more likely to move the mountains we need to see moved before Christ does return.
