Through the prism of eternity18 April 2020
For us, Christians, who are illumined and enlightened in Christ, everything in this world has value and meaning only insofar as it’s a means and path to eternity. Because we see what’s not apparent and gaze upon the invisible.
We regulate the whole of our lives in time on the basis of that which is eternal, what is human on the basis of the God/human.
As long as there is something eternal within the sphere of the temporal, that’s what we live off. But when that’s missing, we’ll seek it beyond time, in the kingdom of the unending and invisible.
We gaze upon everything through the prism of eternity, that is, through the prism of Christ, since He is the eternal God and Lord.
