Jesus — How Long Do We Have —
What if God decided to give you just a sixty-second test … to see if You are ready for heaven, If He asked me, I would beg Him to give me more time. I have too many things to change about me before I can be tested to be heaven-worthy. Heaven is “forever” and I sure don’t want to miss out because I only had 60-seconds to shape up.
But then, suppose God said “O.K. … I will give you a full week for me to test you for a week to see if you are worthy enough to enter heaven.” Yikes, I would say (that is not fair, I need more time to improve and be out of all my nasty habits). I need more time.
O.K. God says … “O.K. … I will give you five-years to shape up and then I will test you to see if you are worth heaven after 5-years.” Would this be enough (five years to get ready)? Only God knows.
God knows all things and He knows how much time (each one of us needs to “get ready”). He gives us each (enough time). We all have exactly enough time for our testing — He loves us that way.
