Death and LIFE

December 8th, 2010

I read a great quote from Rheinhard Bonnke on Facebook recently. It said, “For the born-again Christian, death is not a full stop at the end of the last chapter. It is only a comma after the first paragraph”.

This has been rolling around inside me for the last few days. I really believe that if we can get our heads around the fact, that we will spend way more time in eternity than we will living this life, then our lives will be irrevocably changed for the good.

Today’s Bible verse of the day on BibleGateway.com echoes these thoughts. It comes from John 11:25 and says, “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;”

Faith in Jesus Christ gives us so much. It gives us abundant life now (John 10:10) and it gives us eternal life (John 3:16) when our “first chapter” is finished.

Let’s walk in abundant life today and look forward with hope to the eternal life that awaits all who trust Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Amen!

God Bless,
