“For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21-22).

In Adam, all die.  This age is filled with sinful people who have been doomed to death and destruction.  It is of our own bringing.  When we tell the Lord we do not want His presence, how then can we expect His mercy?  Yet, He has come that all who turn to Him, though they die, yet shall they live.  This is the Gospel that He offers.  Come to Christ and live in Him, now and forever.

Lord, it is so simple, but I often find myself confused, but then, You have told me who the author of confusion is.  Lead me, O Lord, that I may no longer be confused, but know that in You is true life.  Take my hand and teach me to follow You in all of Your ways and know the true life You infuse to all believers.  Teach me to walk in all of Your ways and live in the hope of eternal life.

Lord Jesus, God in the flesh, You have come that we may have life and have it abundantly.  Guide me, Lord, in the way of truth that I may walk with You leading me.  Let me not look to this world which is confused, but to You who is the author of all life.  In You is the hope for all who are living in this sinful age.  Redeem me that I would forever abide in You and You in me.  Amen.
