these 2 words explain everything.

Jennifer Cole

I want to share a secret with you today. A secret I learned that totally unlocked the Bible for me many years ago. Here it is: there are 2 words that are seen throughout the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, and they help explain everything. What are they?

>> LIFE and DEATH.

We need to understand the effects and evidence of each, to truly see the kind of life God wants for us. God’s plan is and always has been LIFE. The Garden of Eden was such a picture of life...the most beautiful, lush garden, flowing with abundance and vibrant beyond measure. And God’s original plan for mankind was life. God did not author death and never wanted death to be a part of our human experience!

Now, when mankind with our free will chose to do things our own way -- starting with the original sin in the Garden of Eden -- DEATH entered the scene. Suddenly there was an opposing force to all of that incredible life that God has designed. I’m not just talking about death as in the “end of life in your body,” although that certainly is part of it. It’s important that we see the 3 key ways that death became part of the picture.

First, a spiritual death happened -- mankind became separated from God. Gone were the blissful days Adam had enjoyed of walking through the Garden alongside the Lord, enjoying the sunshine and breeze. Because of sin, we could no longer connect directly with God. (Thankfully...God had a redemption plan already set into motion...Jesus died on the cross for us to reconcile us with the Father so that an intimate relationship with Him could be restored...thank you, Jesus!!)

Secondly, death brought sickness and disease, and third...it brought poverty and lack. God’s design for us -- His perfect will for us -- does not include illness, nor does it include lacking any good thing. Can you see now how much the arrival of death onto the scene caused our experience of life on earth to change dramatically?

But the story doesn’t end there...thankfully Jesus came to redeem us FROM death TO life! He not only rescued us from all of these effects of death...but He redeemed us to something...He redeemed us TO life! Through Jesus becoming our personal Lord and Savior, we get to experience quantitative life...we get to live forever with Him, for all eternity! But He also gives us all the promises and provisions we need to experience qualitative life...to have and enjoy an abundant life while we’re on this earth.

From the origins of everything we know (Genesis) to present day, and ultimately through all of eternity, the 2 words DEATH and LIFE play a significant role. Read through your Bible with those 2 words in mind now -- and you’ll start to see in fresh new ways how death tries to enter each situation, but Jesus always combats it with life. 

I don’t know about y’all, but I don’t want to miss a single thing He paid for me to have! I want to enjoy my life in Christ and also live my life for Christ! So today I encourage you, don’t get shaken up by whatever’s happening around you but rather get stirred up in the basic truth that God has LIFE for you!

Say This: “Father, thank You that Your plan for me was and always will be LIFE! I believe that means both quantitative life so I can live with You for all eternity in Heaven...but also qualitative life so I can enjoy life here on earth and live my life for You! Please help me to understand, through knowledge and personal experience, all of the aspects of LIFE that you have for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
