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.

Come Back to Jesus!

How about you, friend? May I ask you this? Have you turned from your sins and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Is your life truly devoted to Him? Do you bear the fruit of a life lived for Christ? And, if so, are you taking the love, time, and care daily to tell the world about Him? Are you sold out to Jesus? And to telling people the only way to everlasting life is through Christ?

Help Me to Love

Why do I pray this? Why am I sharing this with you? To love is not always so very easy. Sometimes it is so very hard. Sometimes it seems impossible. At times I have been so very mad at God because of my life’s challenges at the time, or because I didn’t get something I prayed for, that I had everything but love in my heart. I had everything but praise in my mind and my mouth. I missed love in my actions. Oh, how wrong I was to be mad at God! I needed to purify myself and love the Lord instead. With all my heart. As He commands us.

Will You Do This for Me?

Ever done something for someone you really, really, really love not because you wanted to do it, but because you really, really, really loved that person? In fact, something you really, really, re didn’t want to do, but you just couldn’t help yourself? You so very much loved that person that you went ahead and did it anyway? Because it was totally worth the sacrifice when it came right down to it because that person meant so incredibly much to you?
