Feb 04 – The Passing of Time

Just think, if Dad were alive, he would be 116 years old today. Born in 1899.” A Maritimer wrote those words to her brother recently, contemplating the passing of time. It is a subject that impacts every single person on the face of the earth. It is reflected in songs such as “till the end of time”, “and in slogans such as “time waits for no man.” Our Bible also has much to say about time, as in the book of Galatians where we read, “…when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son…to redeem..” As you and I enter the second month of 2015, in this violent, unpredictable world, prudent people will think much about time, its passing and of the future. One New Testament book reminds us, “…it is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgment.” But John tells how to be ready with the words of Jesus, “…he who hears My word and believes on Him who sent me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”
