And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth. John 17:3

Time to go on holiday - the car is packed. Google maps says, "the drive will take 4 hours 23mins".  We set off; our grandchildren are very excited. Then from the back seat: “Are we there yet?” 
“No, not yet” is the answer.
“How much longer, grandpa?”
“Four hours and 5 minutes!” is my reply.

For young children time and distance have a different reality than for adults, though we all live in the same time and space.
We are God’s children, created in the time and space God created. We do not understand, nor can we comprehend the reality His “time and space” (eternity).

On July 20th 1969 (50 years ago) Apollo 11 carrying Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins went to the moon.  Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.  For mankind it was quite a journey – in time and into space!

When I was young I seriously worried that I might get bored with eternal life, what would I actually do forever? But to know God and His Son Jesus, creator of the smallest atomic particle and the largest galaxy with millions of suns, will take eternity (time and space I cannot comprehend), but I can start here and now, after all there is 4 hours and 5 minutes left!!
