Life or Death
2 Corinthians 4:11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. #Bible
“God,” says Dean Alford, “exhibits death in the living that He may also exhibit life in the dying.”
Our lives as Christians is one that has the potential of persecution leading to death, as we see across the globe.
As a young man I remember considering this possibility, and making the decision that death in this world is nothing compared to eternal life with Jesus, and through my life I have reaffirmed this repeatedly.
None of us knows what the future holds in this world, but God has revealed glimpses of eternity with Him. I choose to be with God and my Family of God.
The Apostle Paul says he “knows” that God will raise all of us who believe in the name of Jesus to the New Life to the Praise and Glory of God.
No matter what happens in our death whether natural or by way of persecution. It is a testimony to the Life given by Jesus the Christ. The world, those who refuse to believe in Jesus, are left with death leading to death, and what better word to describe separation from the Creator God.
