With Sunday comes another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge, and this week our hostess is the sweet and uber talented Kristine Breech! Kris has chosen Ecc. 3:14 for our Scripture:
As I ponder the words of this song... the desire to "save every day until eternity passes away just to spend them with you", while it sounds wonderful and romantic from a human perspective... from God's perspective, it's even more wonderful to realize that eternity will NEVER pass away! Returning to this week's verse... "everything God does is forever." God IS eternal! It is one of His many attributes. Another of His attributes is His Holiness. God can't just pretend that sin doesn't exist... so He provided the way for us to be made righteous in His eyes, so that we can spend eternity with Him, and with all those who have come to know Him as their Savior and Lord. We're told in Romans 3:22 that God gives us the gift of righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ (and the work He did on the cross). It is a free gift (Romans 3:24) but it is only ours if we accept it! When we do receive this gift, our sins are forgiven and we are clothed in the righteousness of Christ! Our eternity is secured!
Eternity will NEVER pass away... it IS for eternity! When I think of this song, as well as this Scripture, ... I am filled with joy because I am so blessed to know that ALL of my immediate family and most of my extended family and friends have accepted this gift of Jesus' righteousness in this life time, and thus I KNOW that I WILL spend eternity with them all, along with the One who gave His life for me! I don't need to save time in a bottle, because Jesus has already provided our heavenly eternity for us! I hope I'll also be spending it with You too!
We want to thank Korin for her generosity!
The winner will be able to choose THREE free digis!
