This article reminded me of the fact that until we are saved and regenerated we are dead, dead men walking. Only in Christ are we made alive. And thus we avoid the second death even if our flesh dies we live eternally.
Jesus said to the guy in Luke 9:59-60: “Let the dead bury the dead” when they weren’t dead at the moment He spoke to the man who wanted time to wait until his parents had died before following Jesus.
Life. It is one of the most common words in the English language. It is something to “live,” something to “spend,” something that begins and ends, something that is evaluated as “good” or “bad,” as “healthy” or “unhealthy.”
But how do we actually define it? Is it defined by our culture, or does it have an intrinsic meaning that transcends how the culture uses the word?
