Thought of the Day October 17, 2023 Birth to real life

By 10:17 AM

 "The time for my birth is close at hand....Do not stand in the way of my birth to real life; do not wish me stillborn. My desire is to belong to God." St. Ignatius of Antioch

What an attitude to have! To know that one's real life begins in the birth of death. We belong to God in this life. But we will only fully belong to God when we are with him forever in glory. Most people fear death. Jesus took away that fear of death through his death on the cross. He restored our life in God. The only reason to fear death now is not to be in relationship with God. But if we are in relationship with God, then death is an entrance into light and life. Our purpose for existence has been completed.
