ETERNAL LIFE! – 1 John 2:17 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


1 John 2:17 – Devotional

1 John 2:17

“The world is passing away and the lust of it, but the one who does the will of God abides forever.

Some quick-witted person has observed that none of us will get out of this world alive. While that may be true in the physical sense, it certainly is not true in the eternal sense!

From time to time I allow my mind to attempt to fathom the reality of eternal life. I soon realize for the human mind it is impossible. We have always experienced a beginning and ending, so the idea of everlasting eternity stretches our mind past the breaking point. We simply must accept eternity as an unknown reality!

The reality of eternal life is true for the believer and also for the unbeliever. Each and every human will live forever. We will live in heaven with God or in hell with Satan. I have chosen eternal life in heaven with God!

Our decision as to where we will spend eternity must be made before we die. Now is the day of decision and sadly some have delayed to make the decision and the hour of death has taken them. I implore you to make sure you accept the glorious offer of eternal life while there is still time!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
