What is Life?

Posted 9/15/2001

The Bible makes it clear that life is a momentary, transient thing. The most common allegory is grass.

Life is like grass

Life is short

Job spends chapters 7 and 14 talking about how short life is, and how permanent death is.

If that were all the Bible had to say about life, living would be incredibly depressing and useless. However, more often than not, the brevity of our lives is used as a comparison to the eternality of God.

God is forever

Yes, our life here is short, but it's really just the beginning. Our eternal life is with God, and we can start it now!
