You are a person of your generation. You look around to notice that a generation, has passed on from you.
Sorry to inform you – but there is a generation that sees you as old.
Everybody is young or everybody is old depending on your telescope usage, that spies on time.
I have a 25 year-old inside me, but I am not 25. I’m seen as old to real 25’s.
You are fit?
You are fit, but getting past it – old to that young whippersnapper, who moon-walked past you on the street the other day.
His moon-walk revved up to full throttle.
You can do twenty press-ups, but beware of your green face, when the guy ten years younger than you – does forty.
The march of time. Grow old gracefully.
I heard of the death of a forty year old. Many die young.
Where does the Lord God figure in the age stakes?
He has neither beginning of days nor ending.
Hebrews 7/3 Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.
Age is the result of corruption. Old bones and skeletal collapse.
Passing through this scene of time – we distract ourselves with what is here and now. With what the world has to offer.
And pop star after pop star – deflated, dejected passes away in tragic fashion.
They received all the adulation, attention, idol worship ‘all this will I give you…’ said the god of this world.
But the fame and fortune and adoration is a big let down, and yet many crave it. Too young to think there is another side to the coin of fame.
‘This is the most important moment of my life’ they gasp, as they wait to be voted in or out by the entertained public.
We are all passing-through.
A man named Solomon sought to find what was beneficial to do and be involved in – under the sun. He bought the T-shirt on most of the possible things we could give ourselves to.
He tried ‘em all and remained convinced that it was all – emptiness.
He concluded despite his fame and fortune, there was only one maxim – Fear God and keep his commandments.
But, even so, Solomon in all his glory, had not tasted the new covenant that was-to-come in the Person of The Lord Jesus Christ.
Today, It is spiritually duller than before – and we need Christ’s help more than ever, to enter behind the veil, into the absoluteness and veraciousness of the Almighty – through His Son.
Yes we age with each passing day. Time and tide waits for no man.
Now is the acceptable time to awake to the gospel, before age takes it’s final toll.
John 6/67 “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. 68. Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”
