Ecclesiastes 3:11 (ESV)
11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
The concept of eternity can be quite overwhelming.
Our minds are so small, so focussed on the temporal, that ‘no human mind has conceived the things God has prepared for those who love him.’ (1 Corinthians 2:9b)
And yet this offer of ‘eternal life’ is freely given. A wonderful ‘gift of God’ (Romans 6:23)
Deep down we suspect it to be true. The question is: “Will we put our trust in Him?”
‘Eternal punishment’. (Matthew 25:46)
That is our lot if we reject Him. If we choose not to follow Him.
After all, He is our sovereign Lord whether we accept it or not. But will we invite Him to be our Saviour?
All God asks is for us to quite simply ‘”Repent and believe the good news!”‘ (Mark 1:15): that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Galatians 2:20); who ‘died and rose again’ (1 Thessalonians 4:14); and is now ‘seated at the right hand of God.’ (Colossians 3:1)
prayer : thank you for the simple truth of the gospel and it’s saving power
action : share this truth with others
