We humans like to live or have life that is why we eat. That is why we go to the doctor when we are sick. Most of our government services" purpose is to protect life. This is what we call physical or biological life. God is the source of this physical life. We know there is a limit to this physical life. All of us will eventually die.
According to the Bible we also have spiritual life. God who created us is a Spirit. God breathe into us and we became a living soul.This started in Adam and Eve . We learned that they sinned /disobey God, so man died spiritually,which also caused limit on our physical life.
The Bible or through the Bible we are promised eternal life or everlasting life. But we just read that we are dead spiritually and also going to die physically. The answer to having eternal life is to reconnect with God. This life can be obtained through Jesus Christ because He died for our sin.His resurrection or coming from the dead tell us that we will live also.
But how do we know this is true ? There are two ways, one is we will wake up someday in heaven and the other way is we see Jesus coming down from heaven to get us or live with us or we living with Him.
For Christians Jesus is our blessed hope. He is our life. Though we are dead or will die, we will live again through Jesus.
When can we have this promise of eternal life ? Don't wait till you die physically, because during that time we will have no consciousness.
Come or go or pray to Jesus while we still have physical life.If you have not done this , today is the best time.Remember this is eternal or forever Jesus and you should not separated again from each other.
One last thing , being one with Jesus is being born again or being a new born baby. We then need to grow and be cared for. God will help us grow through other people who loves Him.
