Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also (John 14:19).
Today’s Morsel: Are you living or just existing? You see, if all you do is wake up each morning, and worry about all the things you have to do and are concerned with, where you’re next meal and income will come from, what people think about you, if you are going to live or die, then all you are doing is existing. But if you are excited about each new day, and are anticipating the new challenges the day will bring forth and what you can accomplish for Jesus, ready at any moment to enter those pearly gates, then you are living. Paul said, "For me to live is Christ." In other words, God’s not dead He’s alive. And if you say you are a born again Christian, then you must display the life of Christ in your body, as Jesus arose from the grave. Dead people are in the grave, but those who are walking around are supposed to be alive. If you feel like you are dead today, then stir up the gift that is within you. One of the requirements from the children of Israel, for the Tabernacle in the wilderness, was that they were required to bring fresh oil to the temple every day. Fresh oil prevented the lamps from smoking, gave a clean smell, and a brighter light. David said, "I shall be anointed with fresh oil." If you begin your day with a fresh anointing of the Holy Ghost, through prayer and reading of the word of God, you are going to burn brighter and not look or smell dead. Dead fires only have smoke and ashes; but a live fire has flames and burnable resources. Jesus said, "Because I live, ye shall live also." God’s not dead, He’s alive.
Sing: God’s not dead, He is alive; God’s not dead, He is alive; God’s not dead, He is alive, I feel Him and He’s keeping me alive.
