The thinking of our generation often reflects a willingness to exchange a high view of God’s eternity for a short-term concept called “here and now.” Technology is presumed to be paramount, but the answers science gives us are short-term answers. The scientists may be able to keep us alive for a few extra years, but believing Christians know some things that Einstein did not know! For instance, we know why we are here. We can say why we were born. We also know what we believe about the value of things eternal. We are thankful that we have found the promise from the God of all grace that deals with the long-term and the eternal. We belong to a company of the plain people who believe the truth revealed in the Bible. Actually, the wisest person in the world is the person who knows the most about God; the person who realizes that the answer to creation and life and eternity is a theological answer, not a scientific answer!
Things which are seen are temporal; but things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
We are thankful that we have found the promise from the God of all grace that deals with the long-term and the eternal.
Lord, make me truly wise by teaching me all I can know about You.
