You have two choices when you are dead…

Day 363

I have some friends of mine who are alive….and some friends who are dead.  And you know what, there are not many options in between.  BUT…when you put God in the equation there is….think about this…

When Adam was created….he was dead.  Just some clay that looked like a man.  Until…

Genesis 2:7 -Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (NASB)

You see that is the way it was from the beginning.  Without God, we were dead.  And without God we are dead.  But you say Dan, I am reading this therefore I am alive.  Really?  Well what about this passage…

Genesis 2:17 – but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die. (NASB)

But Adam lived after he ate.  Well physically yes…but he died Spiritually.  That is why Jesus came to give us life.  But you say, I have life.  Really?  Without God?  You may be breathing…but you are dead spiritually.  Okay…let Jesus explain it…

John 10:10 – The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. (NASB)

So be encouraged…you don’t have to stay dead.  You can come back to life if you will accept Jesus’s sacrifice for your sins…see how easy it is?  And notice that Jesus doesn’t just want you to come to life…he wants you to HAVE life, and have it abundantly.

Grace and Peace, Dan

About Dan

My name is Dan. I grew up on the lovely Eastern Shore of Maryland...go Colonels! God really got a hold of me a few years back and asked me when I was going to "get in the game" and start living my life for Him. I have been burdened with the fact that many...many men in our world are wasting their lives while God wants them in the game. This is one of the ways that I am giving them that challenge...our nation, and our world depends on it. So thanks for your support...and your prayers. Dan
