Time

 

Time…

We are all given this gift — emperors and paupers, kings and children, ancients and moderns.

Time…

We may have learned how to measure it, but who can master it? Who can make time obey it’s wishes — multiplying it or accelerating it or slowing it down?

Time…

With its passing, all will be level. The rich go to their grave as the poor do. All will be a memory when they step out of time.

But there is one…

One who spoke the world into being and ordered it with time. One who stepped into time on purpose. One whose birth would re-order how time was marked and whose death made it seem as though time had stopped.

This One…this One makes all things beautiful in His time.
