ETERNITY by Lee Gossett
Many people don’t believe in eternity and that life will end when we take our last breath.
2 CORINTHIANS 5:8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord (NIV).
That is, life as we know it here on earth. Regardless of what people believe or don’t believe, the only thing that matters is what Jesus says about it.
JOHN 14:3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am (NLT).
He wants all of us to have eternal life with Him. Therefore, Jesus is about the eternal business of His Father. Our time is limited, and not one of us knows the day or when He will come. It’s not God’s will that anyone of us should depart this life for eternity.
2 PETER 3:9 The Lord isn’t slow about keeping his promises, as some people think he is. In fact, God is patient because he wants everyone to turn from sin and no one to be lost (CEV).
Most people will live their lives without thinking about the eternal consequences focusing on their own needs and desires. Dear friends, if you don’t believe in God, you will spend eternity separated from Him in a place called Hell. It’s something you can’t even begin to imagine – none of us can. As we enter the Easter season, I pray your eyes will be opened to see things as you’ve never seen them before as God reveals the sacrificial love of His only Son, Jesus Christ.
JOHN 3:16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believe in him will not perish but have eternal life (NLT). AMEN.
