who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day.where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. He said, ‘Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’
Jesus came so we can have everlasting life. He came to let us know of the kingdom of heaven, to bring us back in union with God the Father from sin, shame, and suffering.
Just as Lazarus longed for food, so also Jesus long to feed and quench our thirst with Spiritual food.
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Just as the rich man, if you and I do not make the correct choices on this earth to live a righteous and purposeful life there will be consequences for our actions. I am trying everyday to make the right choices in my life. I cannot do this on my own I need Jesus Christ for that. What do you choose for yourself tomorrow maybe too late? The rich man would do anything to go back and change his ways and warn his brothers. Sometimes the next day is too late.
Lord you are our Savoir, our provider. Only you can bring us to that place where we will never thirst again. Lead us to the everlasting spring of life. Help us to not be selfish and self-serving. Help us to think of others and to serve in the same way you serve. Let thy will be done in our lives as you will it, in the name of Jesus Christ.
