'If a man die, shall he live again? ' [Job 14:14 (RAV)]
'If a man die, shall he live again?'. A good question when you consider that every birth ensures there will be a death.
The teaching of Jesus completely changed man's thinking on the matter. The experience of Jesus gives an unmistakable answer in the affirmative. He died and lives again. To His disciples He says, 'Because I live you will live also.'
Time and change and decay dictate that there will be an end to life as you know it and a relinquishing of all that you have done in it. But it is the way in which each one of us trades with time and talent given us that determines the quality of 'life' we experience then. Jesus said, 'Unto whomsoever much is given shall much be required.'
