How do you live it?

Wednesday October 10th, 2 Timothy 1: 8-10 So don't be embarrassed to speak up for our Master or for me, his prisoner. Take your share of suffering for the Message along with the rest of us. We can only keep on going, after all, by the power of God, who first saved us and then called us to this holy work. We had nothing to do with it. It was all his idea, a gift prepared for us in Jesus long before we knew anything about it. But we know it now. Since the appearance of our Savior, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus. News flash, death is defeated, now how will you live your life? News flash, life is vindicated in a steady blaze of light, now how will you live your life? Most people of faith wrongly believe they have to earn their way into heaven in some fashion. In the Abrahamic faiths of Islam, Judaism and Christianity there is the message that God created and called us good. God acts in history to bring about faith and God loves us and would no more condemn us, his children, that you would condemn any of your children. Having said that, children always have a way of going places were a loving parent would rather they not go, the scriptures of all three Abrahamic faiths are full of such stories. But the question is, knowing that you are saved, knowing that you are going to be with God, knowing that God loves all people and calls us to live lives of justice and integrity, how do you now live?
