THIS IS THE LIFE
John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
Granddaughter has a saying when we are all sitting on the porch soaking up the sun and resting between her many adventures.
She will lay back and say “THIS IS THE LIFE”
And that got me thinking this morning, What Is Life Really Suppose To Be?
Is it really everything that we have made it?
Has it come to the point where most of our days are consumed by so many meaningless things?
Jesus came to give us and introduce us to Eternal Life.
Not Eternal Worry, Not Eternal Regret, and certainly Not Eternal Stress and Anxiety.
He came to give us Life, the Abundant Overflowing Life.
If you have been swept away in all of the turmoil and division of this world then perhaps it is time for us to re-focus on what Jesus left us to do on this earth.
Knowing what is going on in the world is important.
Understanding how prophecy is being fulfilled is very important.
But our Responsibility is not to just gain that understanding and then fret about it.
We have the wonderful responsibility of speaking the Name of Jesus to a world that doesn’t know Him.
And while we are doing that, we are also encouraged to live with the Peace and Joy that Jesus left us and paid the price for us to enjoy it.
This world will pass away, and these problems will ultimately be consumed by the Power of the King of Kings.
Meanwhile let’s enjoy our time in God’s Glorious creation , and perhaps at least once today, you can say the beautiful words of my precious granddaughter Caroline, THIS IS THE LIFE!
