WANTED: dead AND alive!

Come!

That word is spoken a lot in the Bible.  Almost 80 times in Genesis alone!  And there are 66 books of the Bible.  You do the math!

Come?

Come where?

Come why?

That unchanging word has beseeched and drawn people throughout all generations.  It has drawn them from the broad path to the narrow.  It has drawn them from darkness to light.  It has drawn them from death to life.  That same word still draws people today.

Come!

A place to belong.  A place to live.  A place to be restored.

Come!

Jesus is the one doing the calling.  The place is Him.  He wants you dead or alive!  Or….both!

Romans 6:8-11  If we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.  We know that Christ, who was brought back to life, will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him.  When he died, he died once and for all to sin’s power. But now he lives, and he lives for God.  So consider yourselves dead to sin’s power but living for God in the power Christ Jesus gives you.

Jesus, I believe that “COME!” will be the shout you give when you return.  (“My sheep know my voice and they listen to me.”) Maranatha!  Come, Lord Jesus!  Amen

About lifevine

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
