Last week’s column from Ecclesiastes reminded us of our human mortality. The Word said to “remember our Creator in the days of our youth.” The implication is that it may at any time soon be too late to take care of our most important relationship: the one with God.
Many people fail to understand that they have an ongoing relationship with God already, whether aware of it, or not. God is omnipresent in our lives and knows everything about us already. God waits to be acknowledged by his greatest creations, people, and reconciled in relationship by our choices to follow the invitation of the Holy Spirit to repent from sin and accept Christ.
The point is we never know when this piece of eternity we call life will end and the next piece of life that God knows as eternity for us begins. We need to take care of our future by letting God heal our relationship through Jesus now – while we can – before our body goes into its “long home” in the ground.
Our spirit will return to God, who gave it, last week’s column quoted. And when we get to that part of eternity, what will be the next phase? Will you be eternally connected or eternally separated from the Love and Life that your Creator God is? These are important questions and decisions. The Book and a Bible-based church can help you find the best and correct answers to all life’s challenges and questions – even its eternal ones.
Quit starving your spirit. Read some Scriptures, asking God to touch you with the Truth of the meaning. And return to God’s Word and God’s house, the church, where your prayers and participation in worship and praise can join with others to create a sum greater than anyone’s individual part. Bless and be blessed, today and forever...while there is still time for you and me to reject sin and follow Christ home.
