Jesus told her, ” I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. (John 11: 25-26)
Dying like servant, obey and sacrifice, is one of those words Jesus uses that I struggle with. When looking at it in the literal sense like the ancient Jews, I think why do I want to die? Because then there is nothing.
But if I step back and look at it through the eyes of Jesus, the view is quite different. For even though my physical body may no longer be animate, my spirit, my very essence will live in and with Jesus. Definitely a perspective I can Live with. So I Long for a Life Eternal with Jesus.
All for the Glory of God,
