Time Flies

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.”

I was sitting with some friends over dinner recently, and we were talking about the future. Now these friends were all a lot older than me, so the sense of proximity, of inevitability of death, was a little sharper in their focus than it may perhaps be for you and me.

Can you believe it? Here we are – it’s the middle of September already. How did that happen? Where’s this year gone? We’ll turn around and it’ll be Christmas again in just a few weeks … seriously!

I remember back when I was a child my parents used to say “Oh, the years seem to be flying by so quickly”. I mean … come on … I thought they were crazy. Every year at school seemed to drag on for so long.

Well, my dad’s been dead now for almost a quarter of a century, my mother just turned ninety and I’m into my sixties! And I have to say that they were right. The years just seem to be flying by so quickly!

It’s just the way it goes.

So what’s it going to be for you and me? Just another year closing out over these coming weeks and then into the next and the next and the next and … then what?

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.”

Personally, I know what my “then what?” is going to look like. It’s an eternity with God, because I believe in Jesus – the Jesus who died for you and me on that cross, the Jesus who rose again to give us the gift of eternal life, the Jesus who sent His Holy Spirit to dwell in any man, woman or child who would entrust their lives into His hands.

Eternity with Jesus. That’s what my “then what?” is going to be. How about yours?

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
