When Twentieth Century Fox, a well-known major movie studio, began back in 1935, I doubt if they considered a time when their name would be obsolete. They likely didn’t consider that in 65 years their name would be outdated. It’s only been recent (2019) that they were absorbed into Disney. Yet here we are well into the 21st century already.

Through the ages, Christians have known and worshiped a Savior who is not bound by time. In Revelation 1:8, Jesus Christ identified Himself by saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End … who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” He called Himself, “the First and the Last” (vs. 17). And in verse 18, “I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore.”

We are constantly bound to clocks, calendars, and schedules. Yet, Jesus Christ is not bound by time. We live, knowing that we will die and knowing the pain that comes from the separation from our loved ones who have died. Jesus Christ is Lord of eternity, not held back by death. We often have failures in our life. Jesus Christ is risen. He is the victor over death and the grave! He promises us that we can be victorious also. Paul wrote, “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?...but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (I Cor. 15:55, 57).

He is true. In every century His name is universal, without limitation. Jesus Christ is timeless and offers salvation to all. He desires all to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth (I Tim. 2:3-4). As we are thinking of our many blessings this week, let us take some “time” to remember what Jesus has really done for us! Will you take advantage and follow Him? Acts 2:37-38, “…Brethren, what shall we do?” And Peter said to them, “Repent and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins…”
