Why do people die? (0)
Q: Lily
A: Dear Why do people die?,
People die because of sin. The Bible says "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23). It also tells us that "All have sinned" (Romans 3:23). The Bible teaches that life comes from Jesus. "In Him was life" (John 1:4). "God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son" (1 John 5:11).

These texts all teach us that God is the source of life. We get life from Him. When Adam and Eve sinned, they chose to cut themselves off from that source of life. Their sinful choice brought death into the world, and it spread to every human being. The Bible says "Sin came into the world through one man [Adam], and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned" (Romans 5:12).

But because God loves us so much, He sent His Son Jesus into the world, so that by choosing to live for Him, He could forgive us for our sins, and give us His life even though we didn't deserve it. So while it is true that people die, everyone who accepts eternal life through Jesus will live again, and live forever! Isn't Jesus wonderful?!

Thanks for writing, and remember, there's never been a better time to share Jesus!

Your friend,
Pastor Howard
