Eternity is a really, really, really long time.... Where will you spend it ?
Eternity is a very long time.
Eternity is a very, very long time. Where do you plan on spending it? Humor me if you will for a moment and take a piece of paper and place a small dot on it. Now, take that paper and go into the largest room in your house. The room would represent eternity and that small dot would represent the totality of your life. All of it. Whether it is ten years or even a hundred years your life is that dot compared to a never ending eternity. Maybe a better analogy would be to throw that paper in the ocean but you are still just that dot. We are here for a very short time and it is so very important to get this right. Eternity is indeed a very long time. It is forever. God really does not ask much from us when you think about it. He asks us to believe and He asks us to repent. He loves us so much that just our belief and repentance will result in an eternity spent with Him. Wow! That really is a wow considering we really do not deserve any of His gifts yet He gives them so freely and openly. God is love and it is evident by His forgiving nature and heart. It is pure and complete grace. Jesus loves you immensely and without any reservation whatsoever right down to His sacrifice on the cross. He suffered so you and I could spend eternity with Him. It is agape love. It is love beyond human comprehension and understanding. I think the closest we see it would be the love of a mother and a child and even that does not quite capture it but it is still the closest we know. What will you do with this wonderful gift that God has bestowed on ALL of us? Jesus wanted in fact that none should perish. He went to the cross so all could be saved. Will you embrace it and accept this amazing gift or will you somehow determine that hey I am a pretty good person and I will make it. You could not be more wrong. You will never make it on your own. Not a chance. God does not have a place for the fence sitters. You are not even close. We are born into sin and there is not a single thing you can do to earn Heaven. It is all by grace. It has been earned for you only by the blood of the perfect lamb, Jesus Christ. I implore you to get this right. Eternity IS a very long time. Don't you want to spend it with our Lord. Always remember His undying love for you and His willing sacrifice. Without Him there is no answer for sin. He is the answer and He alone provides. Here are a few examples of eternity existing in the bible:
Isaiah 40:28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, The Lord, the creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired His understanding is inscrutable.
Revelation 1:8 I am the Alpha and the Omega says The Lord. Who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.
2 Peter 3:8 But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with The Lord one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
God bless always.
