I would like to impart My Life Application Bible's exhortation on our highlighted verse. It says, "The author of Hebrews quotes Psalm 102:25-27. In the quotation, he regards God as the speaker and applies the words to the Son Jesus. The earth and the heavens rolled up like a robe reveals that the earth is not permanent or indestructible (a position held by many Greek and Roman philosophies). Jesus' authority is established over all of creation, so we dare not treat any created object or earthly resource as more important than He is. When we spend more time on ourselves than on serving Christ, we treat ourselves (His creation) as being more than important than our Creator. When we regard our finances, rather than our faith in Christ, as the basis for security, we give higher status to an earthly resource than we do God. Rather than trusting in changeable and temporary resource, trust in God who is eternal." Wow, this is so true. We only need to look and examine God's Word to find out what Jesus promised to everyone that would place their faith in what He accomplished at the Cross (His death, burial and resurrection). We have eternal life in His presence where Sin and Death no longer exist. Where time and distance no longer hinders us and we will live in total freedom to serve and love our God. Oh, what a glorious day that will be. But while we are still here on earth, let us totally submit ourselves to the Spirit of God so as not to be tempted by the radiance that the temporary things (fame, money, power, career, beauty) of this world persuade us to worship. Only Jesus Christ is worthy of our worship!
For this Card, I used an image from Alleyway Stamps called "Home" that I colored using Hobby Colour markers and Distress Ink. The base is A2 size using white CS. I also added some glitters (Stickles-Crystal) for added dimension. The sentiment placed on the envelope is from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps. I love this simply beautiful card.
