A Chilling Idea and the Truth that Trumps It

A Chilling Idea:

If this life is all there is, then everything will eventually burn up in the death of the sun and no one will be around to remember anything that has ever happened. Everyone will be forgotten, nothing we do will make any difference, and all good endeavors, even the best, will come to naught. 

The Truth that Trumps It:

Unless there is God. If the God of the Bible exists, and there is a True Reality beneath and behind this one,  and this life is not the only life, then every good endeavor, even the simplest ones, pursued in response to God’s calling, can matter forever. That is what the Christian faith promises. 

Timothy Keller, Every Good Endeavor

My heart and mind sing at the reality of our existence, and shudder at the thought that some cannot, or refuse, to consider it.
