When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun. (Amazing Grace)
Those lyrics of “Amazing Grace” send chills through me. My lifetime is just a blink in eternity. How fearful and terrible it is to think of spending it apart from God!
But He promised me that Eternal life is mine in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ accomplished it by going to the Cross for me. Praise Him!
This is good news. God cannot lie. It is not in His divine nature. God is truth. And despite my doubts, His truth is mine. I will go to heaven by His grace, not by anything of my own doing. Christ died on the Cross that I might be forgiven by God and receive the Holy Spirit Who renews me every single day. He save us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but according to His mercy, through the water of rebirth and the renewal of the Holy Spirit.
What wonderful news! My weak and sinful self can’t work its way to heaven—but Christ, through God, reaches out His hand and leads me there, dependent on Him to do for me what I cannot do for myself.
Our God is limited only by His own nature. Eternity is ours!
FAITH STEP: Today give thanks for Jesus, Who reaches into our helplessness and makes us whole.
