Let’s try an experiment.

I say God.  What image came to mind?

I say Man.  What image came to mind?

Did you think of Jesus, when I said God.

Yet Jesus was/is the ultimate of both.

I say Death, did Life come to mind?

I say Life, did Death come to mind?

Consider Jesus.

Jesus is the death of Death and the life of Life.

I say Calvary, did Death come to mind?

I say Resurrection, did Life come to mind?

Consider Jesus.

Jesus – the Man-God who died; the God/Man who lives.

By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. When I was in high school we had a pastor’s wife who made the comment, “We live to die….we die to live”. That truth has stuck with me.

    Great truth. One of the paradoxes that leads to happiness on earth as well as eternal life.
