Driven by Eternity
by Berni Dymet
John 14:6 - Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Most of us these days are so focussed on what's happening now, we've almost forgotten what it's like to dream about tomorrow. Let alone think about….eternity.
Well - eternity is an awfully long time. So it bears some thinking about. The popular view these days is that it doesn't matter what you believe in - just believe it with all your heart and you'll be might.
But Jesus simply didn't give us that option. He said, "I am the way, the truth and the life and no one will come to the Father except through me."
Now I'm sorry if that's politically incorrect. I'm sorry if it offends some sensibilities. And I'm sorry if that doesn't fit with your view of how God should behave.
But if God is God, then He gets to choose. And His choice was to send His Son Jesus to die to pay for your failures and mine, so that if we put our faith in Him, we can have eternal life.
