Born To Eternity

RG AUDIO 020412Psalm 90:1-10

“Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” was the title of one of the most famous sermons ever preached. It was preached by Jonathan Edwards in Enfield, Connecticut on July 8, 1741. Many people literally fainted with fear as the sermon was being delivered.

Although Psalm 90 wasn’t the minister’s text on that occasion, it does mirror the sentiments of that sermon. It points out our sinful nature and God’s justifiable anger as a result. The psalm also shows the fleeting nature of our time on earth.

While each of us is born for eternity, our lives on earth may last only  70 years. Our soul lives forever. Our eternity is decided by the lives we live and the decisions we make while on earth. The key decision we need to make, using our God given free will, is centered around what we do with Jesus. Our personal salvation depends on our faith and upon God’s grace.
