Life

Recently one of our friends passed away after a 2 year fight with cancer. She fought with grace and love and never backed down or surrenderd to it, but in and through it all, she praised God for the strength she had and for the life she still had. So the day gets closer to our friends funeral. My thoughts are rushing and trying to figure out why.

Why is there death? Well I know the story of Adam and Eve and because of their sin (disobedience to God) death (sin) creeped in. Sin always leads to death.

But what is life? When I think about this question, these thoughts came rushing in. Life is to be in the presence of God. Life is to be free from worldly desires that keep building walls between you and God. You are not experiencing true life when you give in to sin. Ultimately you are giving your life away to death.

But like our friend, she lived to the full because she knew that her Saviour is Jesus and in everything she gave it all to be in His presence. So she might have died in the flesh, and we will miss her dearly, but she LIVES forever. Life forever.

So what is life? Life is being with God.

The good news is that you don’t have to die to be with God, you can live life here on earth with God and experience true life on earth. Like John 10:10 says… “life to the full”

Galatians 2:20 NLTMy old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Gal 2:20 NLT

In everything we do, we must live the way our Saviour teaches us through His Word. His word shows us life. Jesus said that He is the Way, the Truth and the LIFE.

SO WHAT IS LIFE? It is when you have Jesus in your life and you surrender to His will and plan for you. Sometimes it doesn’t make any sense, but because He is LIFE, I think we can trust Him that He knows what He is doing.

Our friend has moved on from this world, but I know, SHE IS FULL OF LIFE, BECAUSE SHE IS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ONE WHO IS LIFE.

Someone once said. “If you are born once, you die twice, but if you are born twice, you only die once.” It basically means that you will experience eternal death in hell if you don’t have the One Who is LIFE in your life. We need to be born again. Please read this verse (John 3:1-16) to help you understand more…

I want to encourage you, call on Jesus and surrender to Him, so that you also can have LIFE in abundance.
