God is Eternal
Eternality is one of the attributes of God.

Definition:

Webster's says that eternity means lasting or enduring through all time. God is eternal. The Bible tells us our God is a God who was, is and is to come. The Bible refers to God as everlasting, the Ancient of Days. Before time God was, He has always been here and He will continue to be here long after the things of man are gone.

Meaning:

This means for us, that since God is eternal the things of God our eternal. As Christians we should remember and take comfort in that. We need to keep in mind that God has eternity in site when he deals with us. God created time He is beyond time its self, this means that the things of God are eternal, especially the promises of God. And most importantly God's salvation through Christ Jesus is eternal, and that the only way to spend eternity with God is through our acceptance and relationship with Jesus.

Application:

Since God does not have an end we should remember He will always be there with us regardless of our circumstances. He will always be there to comfort and guide us. Most importantly for Christians we must always keep eternity in mind and live our lives in light of eternity with God. We so often get caught up in this world as if this were all there is, and at times it's difficult to remember our time here is but a drop in the bucket compared to eternity with God.
