Eternity is God’s Gift to You

Eternity is God’s Gift to You

I am the Alpha and the Omega, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty (Revelation 1:8).

In spite of what Dr Who (the Time Lord from the BBC television series) might tell you, we haven’t mastered time yet. Time goes by at the same speed for all of us. It’s what we do with it that counts.

There is only one Time Lord, and that’s our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

While you’re thinking about eternity, I want to do a thought experiment with you. It’s based on an illustration told by Des Ford.

I’ve seen the Andes in South America, and they’re awesome. But the Himalayas are even bigger still!

So now think of a bird that, once every million years, comes and takes away a grain of soil from the Himalayas. How long will it take that bird to get rid of the Himalayas? You can’t even imagine how long, can you? And that’s just the start of eternity!

What God offers us is eternity. And if God wants to give us something as infinite as eternity, how could we finite humans ever earn it? It has to be free.

Our God tells us that he loves us with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3), a love that’s stronger than death (Song of Solomon 8:6), and that fills eternity. Because of what Jesus did at the Cross, eternity is there for the taking. It’s what you do with it that counts. – Eliezer Gonzalez

Eli’s Reflection: I’ve sometimes told people that birthdays don’t matter when you’re going to life forever. How does God’s assurance of eternity change how you see your life today?  Do you think it makes any difference to others with whom you come into contact? Think about how seriously you see eternity.

God Tells Us The Truth About Our World

The reality of the world is itself evidence for the existence of God. The universe’s fundamental constants fall within a narrow range that is compatible with life. Today, there are 38 recognised cosmic constants. Of these, the most sensitive is the space energy density (the self-stretching property of the universe). Its value cannot vary by more than one part in 10,120, or else life would be impossible.

I Don’t Believe in Me

That’s when it dawned on me. That I don’t believe in me. And that I don’t believe I can succeed. In anything. You know how our world teaches us that we should believe in ourselves? And believe that we can do anything and everything? That we should chase after our dreams? That we should trust in ourselves? That we should believe we can do whatever we set our minds to? And so on? How could I keep moving ahead in my ministry work without believing in me? And in what I could accomplish in my strength?
