Life or Death

I’m  currently reading a book entitled King’s Cross: The story of the world in The Life of Jesus by Timothy Keller.  So far, so good.  I anticipate several posts about the book in the future.  However, I was reminded last night of what occurs when one falls to temptation.  

In the Garden, the Serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.”  And after mankind rebels, God banished man from His presence.  I suppose we could debate death and the meaning of death, particularly in this passage for hours or days.  However, I was reminded that any separation from God – SIN – causes us to not experience life as possible (in the presence of God).  In other words, each time I choose to rebel against God and follow my own will, I forego a bit of life. 

Each decision leads to life (communion with God) or death (separation from God).  Each decision.  Life.  Death.

What will you choose?
