Life is the most precious gift given to man. Yes, there are other gifts but life is one that gives us access to all the others. Everyone wants life. The young, the old, the politician, the priest, the king and the commoner, all want life. So we live each day fighting to cling onto life. Yet with all our fighting, we never seem to really have life. When we think we have got a hold of it, we suddenly realise we have nothing at all. That is why Jesus was incredible with His claim to be life. From the Garden of Eden, the only thing that seems to have eluded man was life. Not just the now life but eternal life. Jesus is not going to give life but rather He is the life.
Jesus is not just about to satisfy your now needs and give you the now life you desire. He is all about giving you eternal life. Giving you a life that will keep on blessing, enriching and sustaining you. Jesus is your never ending supply of life that keeps giving life even for eternity. You are alive Christ. Never to be separated from God by sin or anything else. This Christ life goes beyond the limits and definitions set by man. Beyond time and the limits of life on the planet. This eternal life is a never ending, can’t run out kind of life. When you think you have got to the end of it, you will realise you are just getting started. And when you think you have started, you will realise you’re about to start. Jesus is life!
SCRIPTURE READING: John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, am grateful for the gift of life. Your life has blessed sustained and enriched me. It gives me joy to know that I possess an eternal life, Amen.
