It's amazing how beautiful and magnificent are the colors of autumn. Bright reds and yellows, some mixed with green, are truly breathtaking, and part of God's handiwork.
The transition from summer to autumn is likewise amazing. Only a few weeks ago (at least here in southeastern Michigan) we had a few daytime highs approaching 80. And now the nights are creeping down into the 30s, and daytime highs occasionally struggle to reach 50.
All of these changes are a product of time, which seems to move faster as we age. Speaking of which, please consider the following pertinent scriptures about time.
Time was created by God in the beginning (Gen. 1:5).
God does not keep time as we do (Psalm 90:4; 2 Pet. 3:8).
Time passes quickly for mankind (Job 7:6; 9:26; James 4:14).
The time span of our lives is short (Psalm 90:10).
Time causes our bodies to perish, but the spirit lives on (2 Cor. 4:16-18).
Time does not change the word of God (1 Pet. 1:25).
Jesus Christ is not changed by the passing of time (Heb. 13:8).
Jesus Christ is truly timeless (Rev.1:8; 22:13).
We must make the best use of our time (Eph. 5:16).
The time of our ultimate salvation is closer than when we first believed (Rom. 13:11).
Now is the time to obey the gospel (2 Cor. 6:2).
Won't it be wonderful when time (as we know it) ends, and eternity with God, Jesus and all the saints begins in heaven?
