Immortality

I have been fascinated with the idea of immortality for as long as I can remember. As a child, I was haunted by stories of vampires – existing forever, but without joy or love or real life to speak of. Eternal life bestowed for a price. Monsters - hiding in the darkness, feared by man, afraid of the light. Then I met the Light. I knew that the darkness was not the immortality that I really craved. Jesus chased me until I caught Him, and gave me eternal life bestowed for a price. But not a price I had to pay. He has already paid – for me, for you, for the whole world. WOW!!!!!!!! Because of His sacrifice on the cross, I will live forever. So can you. And the eternal life that Jesus promises is full of joy and love and peace and real life! Praise Him! Hallelujah!
