The One Non-Renewable Resource
Time is precious, expendable, and non-renewable.
In this world one can always get more money, power or prestige by working harder and smarter. But, as Jesus says, no one can add a moment to the span of his life. Time, because of sin, is a curse. When one's time has run out it is out! It is non-renewable. Whatever else one might have hoped to be or do or have is over!
Now enter eternal life! Not a mere extension of time but the stepping aside from time. But what will eternal existence consist of?
According to Scripture it will be either "weeping and gnashing of teeth." Or unspeakable glory and wonder in heaven with Christ who is coming quickly. Jesus says, "Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. (Rev. 22:12)
And so hear the urgent declaration: The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come." And let the one who hears say, "Come." And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price. (Rev. 22:17)
This water is dispensed in the church. And so come!
