How to Live

12 September 2012 by Neil

"Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live." -- The Son of God, as recorded in John 5:25 

Dead people aren't good conversationalists. They're funny that way. They don't speak, they don't react, and they don't listen, because they cannot hear. Corpses have no ability to respond to outside stimuli, or really to do anything other than continue being dead. For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten. (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

Consider then, how effectual is the calling of God:
He speaks, and the dead hear him, and those that hear him will live.

Glimpse the extent of God's almighty power:
He speaks, and the dead hear him, and those that hear him will live.

Marvel at how gracious is God's grace:
He speaks, and the dead hear him, and those that hear him will live.
