I’m a bit of a time freak as I’m always looking at my watch or mobile phone to check the time. I’m so afraid of being late, I’ve even been known to arrive an hour early for an appointment.
But a time is coming when time will be no more. There won’t be sixty seconds in a minute, in fact there will be no more minutes or hours. Day and night will not exist and seasons will not appear ‘without fail.’ My mind can’t get round this. No train timetables (that might be a blessing!) and no beginnings or ends. In heaven there is no such thing as time. I can’t comprehend this concept; except I know that heaven is completely unknown and wonderfully wonderful.
God made us to be in communities and have connections one with the other. In Genesis God says, ‘it is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’ Therefore we got Eve.
The other day my Christian writing group met in person after a gap of two years. It was a complete delight. We had met on zoom during that period, for which we were thankful, but it wasn’t the same. Now that we are on the right side of covid, we need to be vigilant to restore our connections with each other. It will take effort as we are out of the habit, but so worthwhile
In heaven we will be part of that multitude that no man can number, so we’d better it used to it now.
