Living with Death

February 9

(Romans 7:24-25 NIV) “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? {25} Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!”

(John 10:10 NIV) “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Even though it represents only a single moment in life, most of humanity sees death as their biggest problem. But what comes after death is really man’s biggest problem, because it lasts for more than just a moment - it lasts for eternity. The true source of death, both physical and spiritual, is sin. It is more deadly than any other disease on the face of the Earth. Not only does sin cause us to die, it can also prevent us from really living. You’ve probably heard the expression “living in sin”. That phrase is a misnomer, because living in sin is not really living - it’s dying. We ought to be saying, “They are dying in sin”, not “living in sin”. This is why Jesus came to Earth; that we may live life to its fullest - on both sides of eternity. Let Him rescue you from your body of death. Let Him give you life. As long as you’re breathing, it’s not too late. -- Friar Tuck’s Word of the Day
