Have you ever thought about how much time you have on this earth? Did you know how many minutes there are in a day?
1440. Do you know how many hours there are in a week? 168. It is interesting that nobody can buy more hours. You can’t save time for tomorrow. Time is the only commodity that if you do not use it now you will never have it again.
Have you ever thought about where you will be when you die? We can ignore it I guess; we can pretend that we can take care of that later in life, but the fact of the matter is we do not know when we will breathe our last breath. The fact is, while we busy ourselves for a bigger house, a bigger boat, etc., we may be checking out of this world at any time.
Science cannot elongate your life forever, as good as scientists are death is a sure thing. There are many of us searching for something, health, wealth, fame, simple acceptance, something that would perhaps just drive away the loneliness. It is an insatiable void that takes extraordinary amounts of alcohol, pills, or whatever it is to check out for just a moment.
I would propose that perhaps what we are missing is the understanding of something that was ill-explained to us as children, something that we feel is too far off, or too far fetched to believe… God.
-A historical fact is Jesus Christ was real person who was nailed to a cross (Tacticus, Roman Historian and Senator 1st century), and was buried in a the tomb of Joseph of Aramathea and was recorded as being dead three days and then coming out of the tomb to be witnessed for forty days by countless people. The historians who write about this are Pliny the Younger (62-114AD), Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus (75-130AD), Cornelius Tacitus (55-120AD).
These same historians make up the very history books we use at any college around the world. And millions have given their lives for Christianity; many people would live for a lie, but few would be willing to die for one, yet millions over the years have died for a faith that they believe in to the uttermost. The facts point to Jesus Christ being exactly who he said he is: the son of God, who has come to save the world from sin. That emptiness, that void many of us have tried to fill. “Going to church” does not fill it. It is filled by understanding of who Jesus Christ is, and accepting what he did for you, and asking him to forgive you, and to be Lord of your life; to follow Him.
