There is only one life for the Christian to live. Jesus said He came to give new life to His followers, and that abundantly. But Scripture points out clearly that this life is only found in Christ Himself, serving Him, following Him, and ministering to others in His Name. We are to reckon dead our old life that was apart from Him, that was at enmity with Him; and we are commanded to walk now in His steps, useful to Him at any moment that He should desire to wield us in His hands for His holy work. For the Christian this is life, and it is the only life we should be seeking to live. All else is counterfeit.
