Temporary now, Eternity later
Today’s first reading (Genesis 17:3-9) reminds us that Children of Abraham (children by blood and children by faith) have been striving to keep God’s covenant throughout the ages.
And then, in today’s Gospel (John 8:51-59), our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gives us a glimpse of the Eternity in which he dwells.
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
before Abraham came to be, I AM."
By the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, may we be faithful and persevere in all the days He gives us – few or many, easy or hard – so that He may bring us to the eternal happiness of heaven with Him.
