Proverbs of a 40 yr. old man

Choose life over death. We live in what sometimes is described as a culture of death. Abortion on demand has been practiced for decades. Now some are seriously proposing infanticide. And euthanasia is promoted as a viable means of solving various social and financial problems. This focus on death as an answer to the world’s problems is a total reversal of the biblical model. Death is an enemy, and it is the last enemy to be destroyed.

Jesus has come to offer us God's gift of undeserved grace. Christ our Savior defeated death and brought us the good news. It shines like a light and offers life that never ends. This is why life is such a sacred gift from God. The LORD does not delay the promise, as some esteem slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish, but all to come to repentance. When we are given the choice between life and death, God is telling us to choose life like He told Israel. Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! Amen. And how do we choose life in such a wicked and perverse generation? Choose to love the LORD your God, obey Him, and hold fast to Him. Jesus, The Living Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. He is our life, and He will prolong our lives in the blessings he swore to our great ancestors of faith. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed to the whole world, we will share in all his glory. For we died to this life, and our real life is hidden with Christ in God. Amen. Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor. So, do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. The stench of death is all around in this world. But we have the aroma of life in us through the sweet oil of Holy Spirit. When we place faith in Christ, the Holy Spirit indwells us and empowers us to live for righteousness. Choose life today and with a spirit of power and love and a sound mind.
