Life before life and life after death

Daily Thought

Your Word for 16 April 2024

Colossians 1:13
‘He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son.’

We may think that life started at birth, but look what the Bible says.

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you.

Here God says that before we were formed in our mother’s womb, we were already known to God.

John 3:15 In order that everyone who believes in Him [who cleaves to Him, trusts Him, and relies on Him] may not perish, but have eternal life and [actually] live forever!

So God knew us before we were conceived and we can know God and know Him not just in this life, but for all eternity.
Simple Field
Although this is not our home and although eternity is something we destined for, our time on earth is very important.  Our choices here in earth and the decision we make have a final outcome in eternity.
While we are on earth we have many choices and our free wills allow us to choose the direction we want to take.  These choices in turn affect our final destination for eternity.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

The choice on what we will believe remains ours, but the final outcome is the result. (Death and separation from God or everlasting life with God) This is the personal choice for every human being.  This is the real importance of our time earth, not what we wear, or our careers, our families or what we own.

Deuteronomy 30:19 This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.
