Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. (3 John 1:2)
During this season of visitations, good luck, and prosperity, you will still hear sad stories of unforgiveness, bitterness, and just stories of people who are struggling through life because of disunity, hate and what have you.
This world has cracks, is degrading fast and will die in time to come. People, animals, plants, our earthly treasures that we hold so dearly to will all pass away in time to come. Even the ‘smartest’ beings on Earth will not live forever on this green planet.
The stars of the heavens will be dissolved and the sky rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree. (Isaiah 34:4)
The hope in the everlasting, in the never-changing, in the Creator, is the hope that is not in vain. I have come to realise that live on Earth is all but permanent. Loved-ones pass on because of sicknesses, accidents and plain carelessness. What is life? Do I want to waste my life doing things that don’t satisfy me, doing things that don’t matter to me, and most importantly, doing things just for the temporary. So what if I am the richest guy, so what if I have all the cars in the world. Will those benchmarks, achievements and material gains really matter when I die?
Scientists always support processes – always changing, always evolving, never ending. Wouldn’t clinging on to an unchanging foundation be a better choice?
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
I shall stop here for now, before this becomes some 2-hour talk about God. But yea, just had to reflect on this after hearing all those sad recollections and the video above.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
