Do you want to live forever? Do you want to be immortal?
I do. But not here on this earth. I want to live forever with my God in His eternal Kingdom, where sin and shame, pain and death, war and destruction have no place and no power. I want to be immortal and live eternally in the presence of my loving and holy Abba.
There is a way to be an immortal and live in the presence of the Eternal God. This way is found only in Jesus.
In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.”
…then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead…
Salvation is found in no one else for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
Acts 4:10, 12
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
Do you believe this?”
We each need to answer this question for ourselves: Do we believe Jesus is the resurrection and the life? The way to be immortal. The way to live eternally with our God.
A few years ago, I wrote a devotional for Easter. And although today is not Easter, we, as the redeemed people of God, are called to live new and resurrected lives through our Lord Jesus Christ every day of our lives! Here’s a portion of that devotional to help us celebrate this truth:
Jesus has risen! Always Remember! You have a choice to make. We all have a choice to make about Jesus. Believe the message of Jesus, and receive the salvation and eternal life that comes through Jesus Christ alone.
How? Ask Jesus, even now, to be your Savior. Let God know that you believe that Jesus is His Son who died for your sins and rose from the dead to give you eternal life.
God loves you so much. Your Heavenly Father wants you to hear and believe. God wants you to be set free from the power of sin and the judgment of death. God wants you to know the total forgiveness that Jesus alone offers and the hope and joy of eternal life with the Sovereign and Holy God over all creation! Believe. And thank God for hearing your confession of faith in Jesus as your Savior. Tell someone about your decision to trust in Jesus for your forgiveness and eternal life! Welcome home, precious one! Jesus has risen! Always Remember!
May God open each of our hearts and minds to trust Jesus as our Savior – as our one and only way to live eternally with our Heavenly Abba, as our one and only way to be immortal!
