Ralph's Daily Devotional - Friday, February 23

Scientists today are attempting to find the key to extending life.  Some even believe that they may one day unlock the secret of life and death and make us literally immortal.  Even if that were so, life in the Bible is not simply about living a long life, but living our lives with God, now and forever.  Jesus came to give us both (John 10:10, John 11:25). 

Genesis 3:24 is a parody of Romans 6:23.  Being barred from the tree of life was a sign that we have left the one who is our life.  Thankfully, Genesis 3:24 is not the end of the story but the beginning.  Jesus has come to reverse this process and tragedy (1 Corinthians 15:22).  In Him we are no longer barred but freed.

There is no "cup of the holy grail" bringing eternal life.  Neither is eternal life found in some lab or gene.  It is found in Christ Himself (John 14:6).
