I was thinking about this the other day. I hear people talk about those who have died as though their lives were taken from them. I think sometimes people are even mad at God for “taking” a life.
But I wonder, can God take my life? Does God take our lives?
We’ve Already Lost our Lives
It seems to me that we traded away our lives when we entered into sin through Adam and Eve. That our lives were taken from us in a bad trade. That what we have because of sin isn’t really life.
Unless we give our lives to God. Unless we trade our banal, death-bound non-life and trade it for the amazing life that we have in Jesus. And if we have already given God our lives, can they really be taken from us?
What do you think?
Can our lives really be taken from us?
Can your life be taken from you?
God certainly can take our lives, since God can do anything. But I don't think God takes our lives against our will. Satan is the one who is out to destroy us, not God.
Ahhh. But can God take your life if its already been given to him?
