Where deity is concerned, time is nonexistent; God merely
invented time for humanity. Whether you realize it or not,
we are all slaves to time. Our lives, our occupations and
leisure are regulated by the clock. We think in terms of past,
present, future; of short or long periods; of years, months,
days, hours, minutes, seconds; our own lives are likened to
vapor trails (Jas. 4:14). We are here today and gone tomorrow.
David exclaimed, "What is man, that thou art mindful of him?"
(Psa. 8:4). Yet a loving , eternal God cares enough to extend a
gracious offer to all mankind: "that whosoever believeth in Him
(Jesus Christ) should...have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
