|The other day, I saw a rainbow, both the beginning and end, and, a very special treat; a second rainbow, running parallel with the first. The two rainbows were separated by some distance, but I could only see one end of the second rainbow. I think rainbows are a gorgeous gift from God and when I seen one, I always think of the first rainbow, documented in Genesis 9: 12-17. It was a sign of the everlasting covenant which God made with man, to never again allow the waters to become a flood to destroy all flesh. It must have been a heart warming sight to Noah and his family!|

|My last post ended with ‘everything is temporary – save one thing.’ That one thing is you and I and every other human being on earth who has ever been conceived or will be conceived. Sure enough, your body is temporary, but your soul will live on into eternity – forever! Where will your soul dwell in eternity? This is where it gets a bit dicey! You have two choices; every human being has to make a choice. You can choose to spend eternity in Heaven, with Jesus, or in Hell, with Satan. See the Gospel of Matthew 7:13-14 for Jesus’ words comparing the density of the latter to the former (Here’s a hint: There are many who go in by the wide gate and few who go in by the narrow gate).|
My wife and I recently traveled to Galveston, TX to work with the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief organization in response to Hurricane Harvey. We spent a week in Texas and primarily helped with ‘mud-outs.’ One particular image is seared into my brain and heart: one evening, while returning to the Galveston First Baptist Church, we were on the highway, on an overpass, and I was able to get a good look at one particular street – and on both sides of the street, as far as I could see, were large mounds of trash piled up. Imagine everything you own, piled on the curb, waiting to be picked up and taken to the land-fill. It reminded me of how temporary everything in life is. Everything is temporary – save one thing. We will cover that next time.
