You have made my days like handbreadths; for you, the length of my life is like nothing.” Yes, everyone, no matter how firmly he stands, is merely a puff of wind.
Psalm 39:6 (Complete Jewish Bible)
This life on earth is very short, merely a puff of wind in the face of eternity.
God’s design before Adam and Eve sinned, was for man to live forever.
Can we really see the enormous consequence of the first sin, of disobedience to God’s Word? It ushered in death, sin, sorrow, and separation from God. From the time we are born, our mortal clock is ticking, and time is running out.
Our bodies will die, but our souls are eternal. We will either rise to be raised with Christ, or we will die in our sins, separated from God, forever.
Sometimes, there are only two choices we get to make.– Either we are slaves to sin, or slaves of righteousness; either we are saved, or condemned; either we are forgiven, or not forgiven. Sometimes ‘gray’ areas are not allowed, and there are absolutes.
There is only one way to the Father, God, and that is through Jesus Christ.
In our earthly bodies, this life is short, but in our spiritual souls, eternity is a very long time.
Dear God, life on this earth is short. We are dying from the time we are born. Our earthly bodies will perish, but thank You fro the gift of life through Jesus, for our eternal souls. Thank You for redemption through Jesus Christ, and for Your grace, love, and mercy. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
