The Resurrection and the Life

The bible has a lot to say on the subject of life. There are 272 references of the word life in the new testament. In the old testament there are about 340. God speaks to us through the bible so we know that He has a lot to say about this subject. In John 11:25, Jesus told Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.” Many people spend their entire lives on their life. Jesus essentially says if you want have true life than you need me.

A couple of points:

1) Don’t let the perishable and temporal things of this world dominate your life. You must be careful not to put your hope in your career or people. These things will soon pass away.

2) Give yourself to following Jesus. Immerse yourself in His word and His ways. Be willing to lose your life for His sake.

The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.

John 10:10

I have seen so many people throw their lives in to temporal pursuits. They work so hard, give a ton, and sacrifice so much to make their lives better. God wants to give us peace and wants us to experience true life. The choice is ours. What sacrifice do you choose to make? Every day you have the option to experience His life or to throw yourself in to yours. Choose Jesus. Surrender your desires and will to Him.
