Eternity is how long I’ll live
Even death cannot keep me
Eternity is God’s to give
In Heaven is where I’ll be
Eternity is defined theologically as, the timeless state into which the soul passes at a person's death. I don’t know about you but I am so excited to be counted with the saints who will live for eternity. A saint is classified in the Christian community as one who has been saved, or one who has accepted Christ as their Savior for those of you who have not heard the term saved.
I am so delighted, and even hysterical about living for eternity. People talk all the time about how they want to live forever, and I say, you can! Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and your name can and will be written down in the Lambs Book of Life, and you will be counted among those who will live forever. You don’t have to clean up your life or get your finances in order, Jesus takes you as you are, because there is nothing you can do to deserve this gift, and there is no price you could offer to buy it either. It is the free gift of Salvation and requires only that you confess you are a sinner, acknowledge that Jesus Christ is God’s only son, came to this earth, died on the cross, and rose three days later. That is it! Confess, and believe then ask Jesus to be your Savior.
Oh how easy it is, yet the blessings that come with this eternal life are abundant indeed. I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you that with this gift of eternal life there are responsibilities that go along. For example, the gospels tell us of the great commission, go into all the world and preach the gospel (good news) even to the ends of the earth. If you find something wonderful and eternal and free, don’t you want to share it with your loved ones? I do, and that is why I chose this word for my E day. I don’t know all of you but I choose to love others as Christ loves me and I want everyone to know about this wonderful eternity I get to participate in.
Although there are some who don’t want to live for eternity, because they are afraid it would get boring, I have to say I don’t believe for one second it will be boring. Our minds will be able to learn continually, we will be made perfect, imagine all there will be to learn when this earth we live on becomes the new heaven? The possibilities are going to be endless, our minds will no longer be finite, and they will be able to learn infinitely for eternity! I so hope you enjoyed this post, May God’s face shine upon you all today and beyond, and may he give you joy so abundantly that you are forced to give some away to others.
