DARE TO LIVE AND DARE TO DIE


For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's. (Romans 14: 8)


A principle of the Christian is to dare to live but also dare to die. Why? Because we have assurance of eternal life. We have no fear of death. Our lives are the arena to prove our love for Jesus by loving others. That is true life! 


Those who will live in Heaven are those who choose a heavenly lifestyle. This is God’s plan that we will lead others by example. Eternal life isn’t just after we die, but it begins now on earth through our relationship with Jesus. 


For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21). This is a verse that should motivate us to begin our eternal life right now. 


Our life is not our own. We‘ve been bought with a price.
