Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life. (John 5:24
That was in 1920. One morning in 1923, Jack suddenly jumped up out of bed. He washed and shaved, dressed himself, and walked out the door on his own!
It's not possible! the doctors said. But Jack just carried right on: he set up a business for himself, he got married, he fathered two children, and he lived a normal life for another 20 years! The Ministry of Pensions kept sending his disability checks. No one in Jack's condition could ever recover! they said. But Jack didn't complain! It was like he was reborn. Just when everybody had given up on him, he got another chance at life!
That is what Jesus does for us. He gives us another chance at life!
Dear God, bring me to life through Jesus Christ. In Jesus' name, Amen.
