"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." ~ 1 Peter 3:15-16
Life's a miracle. To live, to see, touch, smell, feel and think as what we are now, known by our personal name, is a miracle. Yet, life is harsh and time is never our ally. From the moment we are in our mothers' wombs, we live. Most make it to see and breathe the air of this earth, but some don't. We grow and learn; perceive and make judgments. Once we were babies, then we are moving on in life, be it studying or working. Most fall in love and form their own family, yet others live and die alone. And we still call this life a miracle?

Yes, life's still a miracle after all. To think and to reason about life is a miracle; no other animals have this privilege. Yet we mustn't forget that this life, though a miracle, is still a distorted one. The Word of God declares that death is the enemy. Don't we feel sad ad we grieve when our loved ones passed away? "Don't be overly upset, death is a natural part of life" is a word of comfort often heard. Yet how far it is from the Truth. Death is an enemy; an intruder into our lives. Who lives to die?

The Word of God continues to declare that Death is the consequence of Sin. Let no one be fooled that only the wicked who commits devilish acts are sinners. For all have sinned as further declared by the Word of God and this is written in our conscience. The gospel is simply this: that we are in need of a Savior and God gave His Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross for our sins. There is no law which we can observe to save ourselves, less faith in Christ Jesus alone. For Christ says, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life." If anyone truly desires life, Jesus Christ is the only answer, on earth and in heaven. May God bless you richly in His Son, Jesus Christ.
