How Old is God?
No matter how large a number is, it is finite. It is always possible to
mention a number that is larger. Scientists speak of the google. It is the
number one, followed by 100 zeros. The google is unimaginably large!
But then think of the googleplexus which we believe is the google raised
to the googleth power or a google times itself a google times. It is said
that if this number were written out, there would not be space on earth to
contain the pages required. In fact, they would more than fill our galaxy!
old is God? Can we say that God is a google years old? No, God is older than that.
Can we say that God's age is somewhere in the googleplexus? No, God
is older than that! God is forever old. God has eternal life. He has no
beginning. He has no ending. He says: from everlasting to everlasting
He is God (Psalm 90:2). He speaks as the high and lofty one who
inhabits eternity (Isaiah 57:15).
There has never been a time when God did not exist. There will never be
a time when God will cease to exist. His life has no starting point and no
stopping point. God is the uncaused cause of everything that is. God is
eternal and self-sufficient besides. He needs and depends on no one.
You and I have birthdays. We can mark a day on which we began, on
which we came alive. You and I have a beginning, but there is a sense in
which we have no ending. God has created us to exist forever. We must
all exist forever in one of two places. Either we recognize ourselves as
sinfully wretched, hopelessly lost, falling short of the perfect character
of holy God, deserving God's wrath against sin, and we thus put our
whole trust in the Almighty One who purchased our soul's salvation by
His blood on Calvary's cross and arose again from the dead, or, we go
our own sinful way, doing our own thing, trusting ourselves and our own
good works. If we trust Christ, we share God's eternal life in heaven. If
we refuse Him we are eternally condemned to exist forever in the
everlasting lake of fire.
For my part I have chosen to trust the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord. For your part, what have you chosen?
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved."
