“Anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life.”   John 5:24

More and more I am learning how to live in this new life in Christ.  Wait hereIt comes by hearing the word of Jesus and believing God. Now what’s fascinating to me is this: the more I believe the good news of God’s love, the easier life gets.  I worry a little less, I enjoy giving and receiving more love, and I even sleep better!  Let me back up a step and say that life itself may not be easier: it is certainly complex enough. What is different is how I deal with it- how I react to it.  In Christ I feel more centered and less rattled by whatever challenges of life come along. From death to life? Yes, indeed!
