Famous Christian Quotes About Eternity, Eternal Life, Forever, Immortality
The Time for Labor and Agony Is Not Long
God has provided this also, that the time for labor and for agony should not be extended—not long, not enduring, but short, and so to speak, momentary: that in this short and little life should be the pain and the labors; that in the life which is eternal should be the crown and the reward of merits; that the labors should quickly come to an end, but the reward of endurance should remain without end; that after the darkness of this world they should behold that most beautiful light, and should receive a blessedness greater than the bitterness of all passions.
The Many Attributes of God
We, therefore, both know and confess that God is without beginning, without end, eternal and everlasting, uncreated, unchangeable, invariable, simple, uncompound, incorporeal, invisible, impalpable, uncircumscribed, infinite, incognisable, indefinable, incomprehensible, good, just, maker of all things created, almighty, all-ruling, all-surveying, of all overseer, sovereign, judge; and that God is One, that is to say, one essence; and that He is known, and has His being in three subsistences, in Father, I say, and Son and Holy Spirit.
You Are a Sojourner on Earth
Awake, you everlasting spirit, out of your dream of worldly happiness! Did not God create you for himself? Then you cannot rest till you rest in him. Return, you wanderer! Fly back to your ark. This is not your home. Think not of building tabernacles here. You are but a stranger, a sojourner upon earth; a creature of a day, but just launching out into an unchangeable state. Make haste. Eternity is at hand. Eternity depends on this moment—an eternity of happiness or an eternity of misery!
