You can impact eternity!

I find it hard to imagine eternity. It’s a concept that is hard to wrap my little brain around.

I’m sure you understand what I mean. When you think about heaven and the new creation that God promises us. When you think about living forever (and not getting bored!) – it’s too much to comprehend.

Is it real? How do we get this life forever?

One of Jesus best mates, John, reminds us how we can be part of this life. Now, John got to see some pretty incredible things. He got to walk with Jesus, see his miracles and hear him teach. He saw his executed friend come back to life and eventually be taken into heaven. God also gave John a glimpse of his power and plans that we read in the book of Revelation. And when it comes to life forever, John wrote this…

God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 
The one who has the Son has life. 
The one who doesn’t have the Son of God does not have life.
— 1 John 5:11b-12

Of course, it all comes down to Jesus, the one who has life forever, gives US life forever.  Whether you know him or not will impact your eternity. And the same goes for everyone else’s eternity.

Together as a church, we have so many ways of making an eternal impact in lives young and old. How? By introducing them to Jesus – the one who has life!

Have a look at the stories of impact and one way to get involved inside this handout today. And as we gather as the church, let’s look forward to the gathering of God’s people we look forward to in eternity!
