Missionary Report

   Jews for Jesus

David Brickner

 

Many of us are like the little kid who, when asked what he thought “eternity” means, said, “I don’t know but it sounds like a really, really long time.”  That’s the mystery because, in fact, eternity is timeless. 

I recently had occasion to think about eternity from the perspective of two Scriptures that I was asked to read and comment on at the memorial service for Ceil Rosen, wife of Moishe Rosen, founder of Jews for Jesus.  The first passage from Ecclesiastes 3:11 and 1Corinthians 12:12-13.  In these two passages we see the gift of eternity, the mystery of eternity, and the promise of eternity.

Even our inability to “find out what God is doing from beginning to end” can be a comfort.  He’s all-knowing and we aren’t… we can stop trying to analyze and find answers for why everything happens the way it does, as we enjoy the blessings as well as endure the pain of this life.

God has given us the gift of eternity in our hearts, yet that very gift remains a mystery to us.  We can’t wrap our minds around certain painful events any more than we can understand how there can be such a thing as forever.  Yet the more we know God, the brighter will be our glimpses of eternity.  And the Lord does give us glimpses, hints here and there, whispers of His eternal love for us.  These bits of timeless reality are sometimes seen in the lives and loves we enjoy while on earth.

 

 

 

 

Please remember to continue to pray for all of those who are being persecuted and killed for believing in Jesus Christ each and every day.
