God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end (Ecclesiastes 3:11; NLT).
Eternity is now,
All around me
Despite my flaws
Despite my ignorance
For you, Lord, live
Here within my flesh, mind, heart
You heal, forgive
And set me free;
You comfort, love
And make me whole.
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed.
(Isaiah 53:4-5; RSV).
From eternity to eternity I am God (Isaiah 43:13; NLT).
One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the Kingdom of God come?” Jesus replied, “The Kingdom of God can’t be detected by visible signs. You won’t be able to say, ‘Here it is!’ or ‘It’s over there!’ For the Kingdom of God is already among you” (Luke17:20-21; NLT).
Jesus lives forever (Hebrews 7:24; NLT).
Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us (Colossians 3:11; NLT).
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8; NLT).
Whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord (Romans 14:8; NLT).
