Human life ends. Life through Christ is endless. Who you are now does not mean that is who you have to be later. If we submit to the Lord and believe, we can change from something that ends to something eternal.
And we pray:
I want to be closer to You, O Lord, my God. Give me the courage to follow Your Word and believe in all the good that You have given to those of us that struggle to comprehend. Help me to comprehend and I will live every day like the gift that it is. I will do this as Your son, Jesus Christ, showed me, and it is in His name that I pray. Amen.
