Have life

Tuesday May 19th, 1st John 5: 12 So, whoever has the Son, has life; whoever rejects the Son, rejects life. A good part of having life is to live it. Henry David Thoreau puts it “I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die Discover that I had not lived.”  In Christ we are given life, now and life to come. When we get caught up in being in charge rather than letting God be in charge, we keep busy, we even have some enjoyable moments, but somehow the why behind it all eludes us. Life becomes less than the gift intended in creation.  A Christian isn’t necessarily better or better off than anyone else, except that in some half-baked way, they have some idea who to thank in this life, and that life of thankfulness makes all the difference. In the process of living a life of thankfulness they find their hearts open even more to the blessings God is intent on bringing to each and every one of us in this world.  In living a life of thankfulness they find that this way of living makes all the difference in the world to themselves and all the difference in the world to the world. It’s what gives life, life and the freedom to live it in such a way so as to suck the very marrow out of it.  (if the idea of marrow disgusts you, there is a session of Iron Chef America you might be interested in).
