Simon Peter answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.” John 6: 68-69
I constantly ask God questions during my prayers, wondering who I am and where I fit into this mysterious life. One day I will die as everyone dies, especially connected to those whom I have loved. From disease, accidents, or old age, these mortal bodies will eventually break down and cease to live. But will we cease to exist? That is the ultimate question: what will happen when these bodies die? Jesus gives us an answer, and I believe in his powerful promise. To know Jesus is to know eternal life, and that is an awesome answer!
Do we study our history and learn from our mistakes?
Do we humble our hearts for our future’s sake?
Do we sacrifice for our children long before they’re conceived?
Do we honor the gift of life, and in our posterity, we believe?
Do we hope for a tomorrow that may never be seen?
Do we trust in this moment living as a simple human being?
Individually, we must answer these questions if we ever want to thrive
Do I truly live in freedom and respect this mystery of being alive?
Do I judge my life is meaningful in this tiny speck of time?
Do I revere the life of others who are body, soul, and mind?
Do I love the image of God revealed in humanity’s invisible soul?
Do I share the promise of salvation which is a gift I deeply know?
I do seek the Lord of Lords and worship the King of Kings!
Faithfully following the Father and Son
One with the Spirit, I sing
I am saved!
I am alive!
Trusting the promise
Of the One!
