Choose Life



Choose Life – that you and your descendants may live

Deuteronomy 30:19

In this Scripture life means, “Fresh, strong, lively, and merry”. In John 10:10, Jesus said He came that you might have life. According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words, in this verse life is translated as, “life as God has it, that which the Father has in Himself, and which He gave to the Incarnate Son to have in Himself….and which the Son manifested in the world.”


Life is not simply a span of time. It is a quality of existence - life as God has it. His life is not filled with fear, stress, worry, or depression. God takes time to enjoy His creation. Adam lost that kind of life due to sin, but you can have it back through Christ Jesus. Choose God’s kind of life.
