The Everlasting FatherDr. Warren W. Wiersbe | December 7, 1975

When Jesus is called the Everlasting Father, it means He is the father of eternity. To demonstrate how much Jesus Christ, the eternal God, wants to share eternity with us, He became a man and died on a cross so that He could bring believers into eternity with Him.

When Jesus is called the Everlasting Father, it means He is the father of eternity.
Eternity is in the hands of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is eternal God, and He wants to share eternity with us.
Every name that Jesus wears is a blessing He shares with us.
Four ways Jesus shares eternity with ordinary people like us:
- Jesus made us for eternity.
- In the heart of every man is a quest for the eternal.

- Jesus came to Earth to reveal eternity.
- Jesus reveals eternity through who He is and by His works.
- The eternal is not limited by time, but we are.
- Jesus died to give us eternity.
- At the cross of Christ, time and eternity met. Jesus’ sacrifice at one point in time covers everyone who believes for all of eternity.
- Because of Jesus’ sacrifice we have the option of eternal life with Him.
- Jesus lives to give our lives a touch of eternity.
- Jesus wants Christians to be different from other people.
- Time hurts people in three ways: decay, delay, and death.
- When we have Jesus, we do not have to worry about the effects of time because He is renewing the inner man.
- As believers, our time is in God’s hands.
- Jesus will return to bring us to eternity.
- We cannot completely conceive of eternity yet, but one day we will understand.
It is foolish to live for this temporal life.
Live your life with eternity’s values in view.
