What’s ahead for you?

Are your joints a bit stiff today? Feeling the effects of ageing in some way?

According to a recent study by British scientists, we can no longer blame the symptoms of ageing on the simple wear and tear of our body, but it’s in our genes. In other words, getting old and even death itself are more genetically driven than was once thought. Some of the benefits of this research may be reflected in future breakthroughs in medical science and in cosmetics. We might live longer and look better to carry on carrying on.

Most of us like the idea of living longer, and everlasting life is regarded by many religions as a reward of the faithful. But, what would they do? It can be a scary idea in one way. Just more of the same forever and ever, world without end, amen? Personally, I’m not quite so sure.

Christianity explains that eternal life is not limited to life as we know it. It’s not going to be the same old life, rather a new life, the like of which we can’t even imagine. No one, the Bible tells us, has seen or heard of what God has prepared for us in the eternal life to come. All we know is that’s better than this one, and, let’s face it, despite all its ups and downs, this life can be pretty good.

With Jesus, we get a new life, and living forever becomes a new adventure, something indescribable and wonderful.

Get Jesus, get a life.
