*Eternal Perspectives: The Record*
?One meaning of the word record is: “to write, to provide evidence of.”
Looking back at the great feats accomplished by persons throughout the ages, are records of wonderful inventions, medical and technological advancements that have improved our lifestyles far above that of our forefathers. We sometimes stand in awe of those brilliant minds and their gifts and talents. Others who come after them work to improve that which was before them and also forge ahead, breaking new grounds.
?Let us pause to consider that God has a life that He has taken the time to Record, to provide evidence of.
Throughout the ages, men have loved Him, hated Him, accepted or rejected Him. However varied the emotions directed at Him, God His Father has said that of all the lives that have lived or to be lived, of all things done or to be done, this is the only perfect life and acceptable life through whom we can be saved.
?God has taken the time to record how we can receive this Life, with its amazing benefits and the devastating consequences of rejecting this life.This my friend, He has done out of His great love and care for us.
?Last year as I looked at the lifeless body of my father whom I love world without end, the only comfort I found was that he had found and accepted the Life of Christ and now has the record that he found Eternal life in Jesus, the Son of God and has made it home. The only hope I have to see him again is to continue to let Christ live His life through me. Then we will be united again in the world without end, because we have the Life of Christ who is the Lover of our souls.
? As we reflect on all that men have accomplished over the years, let us remind ourselves that it is only that
which is done for, in and through Christ will last and be a part of that which is the Record.
*Scripture in Focus:*
? For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 1John 5:7, 10-12
?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.
John 3:16 KJV
The Record is that Eternal life is only in the Son, Jesus . Have you found and accepted this life and if so are you allowing Him to be glorified through you?
