Digging Deep ServiceWhat is life? What differentiates a dead man from a living one? What differentiates a dead tree from a living one? These questions we believe everyone can answer fairly correctly. But if we ask, who is life? Only Christians can give the correct answer. For Jesus is the life. John 11:25, John 14:6, I John 5:12, but there are other questions we must answer.
What is human life like compared to God’s? How can God’s type of life be obtained? In view of Hebrews 9:27 can we say that a certain day is already fixed when I will die? In other words can I choose my day of death?
When we compare the life of a man to God’s we can say that it is like a shadow I Chron..29:15, a handbreath in extent Psalms 39:5, or a vapour. James 4:14. There is only way to obtain God’s type of life and that is through the gospel of Jesus Christ. II Tim. 1:10, Deut. 8:3, John 5:24. And if you want to live the kind of life that God gives then your fleshly life must die? I Cor. 4:11, and you must love I John 3:14 and to love is to give John 3:16. The more you give the longer you live.
Even though Heb.9:27 says that man has an appointment with death, the day is not fixed. You can lengthen your life if you watch your sex life Genesis 5:6-31. If you obey God, I Kings 3:14, if you love Him. Psalms 91:14-16, I John 4:21, if you honour your parents, Exodus 20:12 (of course not at the expense of Jesus. Matthew 10:37) and if you control your tongue, I Peter 3:10. Of course you can also shorten your life if you choose Prov. 10:27. What is your choice tonight? Deut. 30:19-20.
