Living with God

February 1

(Colossians 2:6-7 NIV) “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, {7} rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

(Galatians 2:20 NIV) “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

There is more to life than just our physical body. We are much more than just flesh and bone. We are spirit. Our bodies will eventually die and return to dust, but our soul, that part of us which makes us unique and special, will live on forever somewhere. And that eternal “somewhere” is not determined by how good we are or by what religion we adhere to, but by our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Who we spend eternity with is who we spend our life with here on Earth. Are you living with Jesus today? Is he living in you? Are you rooted in Christ? Have you been crucified with Christ? Are you living by faith in the Son of God? This is what determines your eternal destiny. We didn’t choose to be born and live here on earth, but we can choose where we will live for eternity. Live with God now and you can live with God forever. -- Friar Tuck’s Word of the Day
