In the last 100 years, advances in medicine have added two years to the average life expectancy every decade. But apparently, for many people, this is not enough. There are attempts to accelerate life expectancy especially among the rich and powerful. Here is what some of the world’s wealthiest have pursued:
The truth is that no amount of money or technology can cure death. It is inevitable. Scripture tells us that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. And, the wages of sin is death. However, the gift of God is eternal life through faith in Jesus (Romans 3:23; 6:23). Jesus’ death and resurrection assures us of this. Of course, this is the good news of Easter Sunday. God raised Jesus from the dead, conquering death in the process. The Apostle Paul tells us, “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Eternal life through faith in Jesus does not cost a single dollar. Have you made that faith commitment?
