We All Want To Live
We go to great lengths to enhance and extend our lives.
But, which life is most important to us?
This (earthly) life, or
question not only reveals your beliefs but directs your
How the world sacrifices their soul
to live for the flesh.
Living for the Here and Now
Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we may die. Isaiah
This is our mantra if
We do not truly believe in the resurrection leading to
eternal life. 1
Or, that this world is more valuable to us than eternal
For what will
it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his
soul? Or what will a
man give in exchange for his soul?
For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His
Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO
HIS DEEDS. Matthew
He sacrificed his life so the
world could enjoy the riches of eternity.
God so loved the world that He sent Jesus as the means for
us to live. John
This type of sacrificial love meant that Jesus had to deny
How Gods people put their temporary
(fleshly) life to death in favor of eternity.
Walking in His Footsteps
The mind Christians must have is: Christ! Phil.
For this reason we work out our salvation by putting to
death the fleshly man within us. Phil.
The world does everything it can to live this life but will
face eternal death.
But our Savior came to die so that we could live.
who want salvation will follow Jesus, which leads to eternal life.
