The story of Adam and Eve explains death. Eve told the serpent they would die if they ate the fruit, and that is exactly what happened. They instantly died spiritually because their communication with God was cut off. No more long walks and talks. Gradually, their bodies died. They were designed to live forever in their glorious state in the magnificent garden, but their bodies returned to dust. Man, in his crowning glory of having learned to control his world, at his peak of dominion, starts to decline and finally ends in a mad dash rush for death.
Am I saying that if we learn to obey God, and we relinquish all our worldly knowledge to obtain all the spiritual knowledge in the Bible, if we take responsibility for the mess we’ve made of the life we were given, and we submit our lives to living like the Bible says, that we will live forever? Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying. The first lesson we find is that we must be born again. We must become a baby in the arms of our triune God. How do we do that? By humbling ourselves in front of our Heavenly Father and receiving Jesus Christ, His Son, as our Lord, as the one who saves us from ourselves.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
