Friday, May 18, 2012 when does eternity begin??

"God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life" (1 John 5:11-12). These few words can be a bit mind-bending. The idea that we have eternal life now. Given to us by God through his Son. Not something I have to wait for. Not to something to look forward to receiving. Not something that I have to wait to enter. According to John, I am living in the eternal right now! How old am I? Age doesn't matter in eternity. How much time do I have? All the time I need and more. Think about it. Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, millenniums. All meaningless. You already are living eternally in eternity. Get your head around that one.
