Have you ever heard the phrase “Now this is living?” Many people use it to describe the good life. Most of the time it has a picture of someone laying on a beautiful beach holding a cocktail with an umbrella in it. Many people think that if they were in constant Vacation mode that would be real living, unfortunately, that isn’t close to reality. Jesus promises us that if we believe in him, we will have real life.
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me, even if he dies, will live.”
Real living is walking the path that Jesus has for us. Jesus says in John 14:6 that he is the way, the truth, and the life. Everything we could need is wrapped in the package of salvation. The way to heaven goes through him, the truth of life is found in him, and the life we have always dreamed of is made possible through him.
Where to Look?
Real living isn’t getting out of work or going on Instagram worthy vacations. It is being obedient to the Word of God and learning how to love and serve those around us. It is giving our life away for the Gospel and meeting the needs of those who are less fortunate. Real life is only found when our lives are molded into the image of Jesus.
Real living continues even after we die in fact; it only gets better. When we enter into eternity we will be in the presence of Jesus, we will no longer have any pain or sorrow, and we will receive the reward for being faithful to him. There is nothing on earth that can compare to that. The question is, do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God? Do you believe that he was resurrected from the dead? If you don’t, you will never know real living. Put your trust in him today and let him lead you to a life you never knew possible.
