“In this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven.” II Corinthians 5:2 To seek eternal life apart from the One who is immortal is to chase an elusive dream. For human beings, death is universal, inevitable, and ultimately leads to judgment. This is all a result of our sin, and it can be countered only by redemption through Jesus Christ. Through His resurrection, Jesus broke the power of death and showed humanity the way to immortality. Our response to our mortality should not be to preserve our physical bodies, but to be ready for our own death by receiving the gift of eternal life in Jesus.
