A Zest for Life
By Michael Youssef, Ph D. 11/23/21
Every person has a thirst for life. We want to live our lives to the fullest. Things that clog or impede our lives become objects of our hate, discomfort, and dislike. We abhor sickness, impediments, or whatever diminishes or destroys life.
God created us with a zest for life. Sin in the Garden of Eden brought about the curse of disease and death. No matter how long we may live, we all must face the prospect of death.
Most people live their lives either fearing death or denying that they will have to face it. The Truth is that physical life will fail, but it is Jesus and trust in Him that brings us the assurance of eternal life. In Him, we receive a new spirit and are daily invigorated and renewed.
The more time you spend with Christ, the more energy and vigor you will receive. The more you cling to His Word, the more vitality you will experience. The more you seek Him, the more victory you will have because your focus will be on God and on what is eternal.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for life. Thank You for eternal life in Christ. May I seek You all my days. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
“I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws” (Psalm 119:30).
