Eternity is a difficult concept to wrap your mind around, isnít it? However, some of lifeís toughest questions can be addressed if we have a better understanding of what eternal life really means. Think of an entire ocean made of sand instead of water. Each grain of sand represents a measure of time, and to God time is unending, infinite. In the heavenly realm, time is inconsequential. But for the purpose of relating to something we understand, letís look at our time on earth as only one grain of an ocean of sand.
Itís important to understand even though loss of life is tragic, itís not permanent. This is because what is lost in the flesh is gained in the spirit. In Titus it says our faith in the knowledge of this truth leads to godliness, resting on the hope of eternal life. The expectation of our life continuing, a confidence in what the Lord tells us is not a lie, but truth. Because faith first comes to life with the acceptance of Jesus as Savior, He dying for our sins, itís fundamental in faith so we continue choosing to believe what God tells us is the true.
Be reminded that the truth of eternal life is a reality, telling your mind that what it tries to tell you to the contrary is a lie because Godís Word says so. Reflecting on the fact God created your spirit as something that cannot die mutes those deadly words of fate from the enemy who tries to instill a fear of death in you which is unnatural for a Christian because we live in hope eternal, springing forth until the day of Christ Jesus.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
