It is funny, isn't it? How that before a baby is born, in those long 9 months, time seems to slow down. The anticipation of the coming event seems to stretch out the time, you seem to get everything done that is needed by the time of the long-awaited event occurs. Once the baby arrives, time flies by again and before you know it, the child is turning 10...or out of the home and married!
So, my thoughts lately have been wondering this: If we anticipate the grand event of entering heaven, time should slow and we should focus on doing what needs to be done to get there. Our spiritual 'birth' into new bodies should be the thing we are longing for...the thing we desire most. So, let's get busy and work to get there!
"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it." (Romans 8:18-25)
