God, who is outside of time, created time for our benefit. It is within time that we get to know Him, choose conversion of heart, grow in holiness, and welcome the love of our Father... or not.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 --
I call heaven and earth today to witness against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them.
