The Bible tells us that time had a beginning – creation, and time shall have an end. In Revelation 10:6, we are told: "And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer."
God has power to create time – and to end it. Once time ends, then eternity begins. Everyone of us has an eternal destination. You and I are eternal beings and we will spend it somewhere – Heaven or Hell. There is no middle ground and no alternatives. Either our sins are forgiven or they are not.
Christ has died for all, and all may be forgiven. One of the simplest and plainest verses in all the Bible that deals with salvation is John 3:16. It says: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
It tells us all that God loves all people. To save them, He sent Christ to die for us, and be raised again, to pay for our sins and to give us eternal life. As the verse says, If you will turn from sin, and ask Him to forgive you - and believe that He will, then He will save you immediately. Why let time go on without knowing God or having eternal life? It doesn't make sense.
For believers, you and I need to be concerned about the clock, too – but in a different way. Our time is also limited. We only have so much time left to serve God and earn rewards. How will you use the remaining time you have?
Being in church in the morning is a great way to start. But even before that, why not spend some time in your Bible and getting alone with Him before you go to church?
