A GLEMPSE OF ETERNITY

          When Sir William Russell went to the scaffold in 1683, he took his watch out of his pocket and handed it to the physician who  attended him in his death. "Would you kindly take my time piece?" he asked. " I have no use for it now, that I  am soon to be dealing with eternity.


          The world and all the things in it fade into insignificance in the light of eternity. All the things that preoccupy us are no longer important and only one thing counts; our relationship with God.


         Peter wrote in his last letter, "Since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in Holy conduct and godliness?..... Be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless."  
                                   2 Pet.  3:11, 14.


          How different today might be for us  if we knew it would be our last one on earth before meeting God face to face? I'm sure each of us would strive to live it the very best we possibly could if we knew that. Guess what one day it will be !
