2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1
Do not lose heart. Yes, life moves inexorably toward death. Death is a natural part of the life cycle. But so is the richness of abundant life. Some avoid the richness of life by putting all their hope in an after-life in a heavenly realm. There is an alternative (might I even say ‘better’) way to life life in the face of death — live life! Some think they have to wait for death before they can experience resurrection. I am telling you that resurrection (God’s action in your life, living in the presence of God) is a available right now. That is your eternal glory; that is the fulness of abundant life that Yeshua promised (and lived).
