At the end of the Big Bang Theory episode tonight, the screen held a picture of Leonard Nimoy, who had recently died, and the caption read, “The impact you had on our show and on our lives is everlasting.” I can appreciate the cast’s sentiment. Star Trek’s Mr. Spock was a fan favorite, and fans will miss him. But, as always, life will move on eventually, and Leonard Nimoy and Mr. Spock will be forgotten.
There is only One Person who can have an everlasting impact on our lives, and He is the Lord Jesus Christ. When He conquered death and rose from the dead, He brought eternal life to the world through the power of the Holy Spirit.
To those who believe in Christ’s work on the cross and the reality of His resurrection, Jesus says, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life” (John 6:47 KJ 2000).
Jesus Christ can offer everlasting life to all who believe because He is the eternal Son of the infinite Father. “For as the Father has life in himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in himself” (John 5:26).
God is life. He is immortal. Before the creation of the world, God lives. God is living and active in the world today and when the world is restored and the consummation of the kingdom of God is complete when Jesus comes again, God lives. And He has given us the gift of His Son so that through Him we might live forever. “He who has the Son has life” (1 John 5:12).
