LIFE! God’s Word gives us His view of this earthly life! James for example asks in James 4:14 “What is your life?” Paul follows up on James’ words with a few of his own. Paul says in Philippians 1:21 “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Recently I thought of my life in these terms (1952-?) What about you? Maybe it’s (1977-?) which represents the lifetime of my oldest son, Michael. The point? We only have one life. Just one! How we live this life makes all the difference for eternity! Some people sadly make their entire investment in this life… in this world! Life is much more than what we see right now or what we are experiencing right now! Jesus lived for maybe 33 years. Listen in as Jesus puts His life and ours in perspective, John 6:51 “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
Lord, help us all to live our lives to honor You! You are our LORD… LORD OF ALL!
