Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps my word will never see death. John 8:51 NABRE
Jesus has the words of eternal life. If we are looking to live in the kingdom of God forever then we should be ready to hear Jesus’ words, take them to heart, live them daily and know we are united with Christ in life after death. Jesus has many words He shares during His public ministry but it all comes down to love; love one another and love God. How do we love, we love like Jesus who looks down into humanity and says I want to join them, teach them and show them the way to God’s kingdom. For this generous life giving action He is put to death, showing us cruciform love. There is no greater love than to give your life for a friend, Jesus gives His life for all, friends and enemies, those who know Him and those who do not. God is merciful and will do as much as possible to convince us to seek life after death, therefore we may find many ways to eternal life. One path is through the life of Christ and this is Jesus’ message. Live as Jesus lived and we have nothing but hope for life eternally.
Living after death is not anything we truly understand. We watch people die, we miss them, and we don’t see life after death, but it is our great hope. We think of our loved ones who have passed as if they are in a magnificent beautiful place, united to God, total love. Living eternally is a mystery we believe because we have faith in Jesus who teaches He is the way to life. Faith means we are not certain but we trust.
Is there someone who you miss? What do you want out of life?Living eternally is a mystery we believe because we have faith in Jesus who teaches He is the way to life. Faith means we are not certain but we trust. Click To Tweet
