Eternity in Our DNA

3/19/2022

He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.  Ecclesiastes 3:11b (NIV)

Our life and society have been shaped and molded by incredible advancements in science and technology. Small hand-held devices access a virtual “universal mind” to provide instant answers to our every question and our every musing. So much so that we now seem to have simple, succinct answers for all of the complex questions about life, death, the universe and our origins. Those virtualized answers all center around a supposition of a benign beginning where elements and matter came together by chance.

However, the elephant in the room is that those answers do not address the innate mystery that nags at us all.  We cannot deny there is a longing in the human heart to know the how and why, especially the why when it comes to our existence.  The why is the definitive question science and technology cannot answer because God is that the core of the eternal why. God has placed the longing in the heart of our spiritual DNA to ask the why. We can ask how and ask why but without God at the center who can understand the mystery of the eternal why. Jesus has the answer to the eternal why.

Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.  John 14:6 (NKJV)

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.  Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father inspirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”  John 4:23-24 (NKJV)
