Made for Eternity 
"He has made everything beautiful in its time.  He has also set eternity in the human heart..."  Ecclesiastes 3:11

All good gifts come from God.  He is the Source of life itself and He makes everything beautiful in its time.  As James writes, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning." (James 1:17)

One of those gifts is that God has made us for relationship with Himself. Nothing can truly satisfy the human heart apart from knowing Jesus as our Savior.   It is what Jesus proclaimed saying, "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." (John 8:36)

You were made for eternity.  Therefore, earthly pleasures and achievements won't satisfy.  Riches, fame and success cannot quench our thirst for something more. But with Him, genuine happiness and fulfillment is possible!

Jesus said, "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." (John 17:3)  To know Him is what we were made for.  Life is in the Son and when He appears we will appear with Him in glory.  (Colossians 3:4)

I trust you will be all that He intends by inviting Him into your life.  There is no greater decision you'll ever make!
