HISTORY’S END IS ETERNITY’S BEGINNING - Time Is Our Bus Stop – Eternity Is Our Destination
Have you ever asked God to let you be half as good as your dog thinks you are?
THE FIRST - THE LAST – THE GREATEST - FOCUS ON GOD; NOT THE 'I GOT YOU QUESTIONS’
I want to be greater than great; in fact, I am leaning toward being the greatest. Our pride is astounding at times. So concerned with our self-image, what others have, and what we don't. God is not impressed with how your self-esteem is feeling but how bright the Image of Christ reflects in your life.
Many things in life are not worth the time invested, questions we entertain have no redeeming qualities, and our positions on earth are fleeting at best. Our eternal posts and crowns must have our complete and undivided attention. For this reason, James tells us to, "Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up."
When you think about all the "Got You" questions in life, it's amazing what people come up with, especially concerning God. "Since God is love, why would He send anyone to Hell?" HE DOESN'T! Those who deny Christ will, by that decision alone, determine their eternal state. Free choice can either be a gift or a curse. Recall the fall in the garden and stay obedient to God's Truth.
Here is a ridiculous question asked of me, "If God is so great, can He make a rock too heavy for Him to pick up? WELL YES, HE IS GOD. But then He could reduce the weight and toss the rock across the universe. Silly little "Got You" Questions that only comfort those who would debate and deny God anyway. God doesn’t play that game!
When David killed Goliath, was he great, his aim greater or the rock greatest? His faith was more significant than the men of war; however, the God he served was the greatest. The Lord's strength was the greatest of David's weapons. He humbled himself before God for such a time as this.
FOCUS ON JESUS FOR HE IS COMING BACK FOR HIS BRIDE AND HIS REWARD IS WITH HIM.
