Eternity Is A Long Time

The Bible tells us that a person can find eternal life in Christ. I walked into the nursing home to visit Mr. R.    A small framed frail man smiled and looked at me with gratitude in his heart after we prayed. He just asked Jesus into his heart, asked for forgiveness for the sins committed in his life, and he thanked God for the promise of salvation; eternal life with God and escaping the punishment of hell.

Eternity is a long time. To help someone secure their personal eternity in heaven is incomparable to anything on this earth. We need to think in terms of eternity in this temporal world. Vanessa cried when I told her that her neighbor prayed accepting Jesus in his heart. He is now ready for eternity. I will never forget the expression on his face after we prayed.
