Forever and eternal, these are lofty words and kind of hard to come to terms with. We see life as day to day, and even the longest of our long term plans are measured in years, not “eternity.” The unavoidable truth is that our life will end, and even the most precious of loves will cease at that moment as well, if not before. Or so it seems.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely, and may your entire spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The One who calls you is faithful, and He will do it. – 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
