Most recently, my wife was hospitalized for a total hip replacement. She was admitted and had to be hooked up to monitors and oxygen. After a major surgery, the oxygen line as well as the IV for fluids and medication are like a lifeline to the patient. They administer lifesaving medications as well as help keep her oxygen levels up, after receiving anesthesia. These are necessary to help the patient recover faster.
In contrast, as Followers of Christ, our lifeline is Jesus, the Holy Spirit, God’s Word, and prayer to our Heavenly Father. I cannot even imagine living my life without Jesus, God’s only begotten Son, who came into the world to save the world and not to condemn the world. (Cf. John 3:17)
Once one has accepted Jesus as their personal Savior, He will fill you with His Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will be your lifelong teacher and guide through God’s Holy Word. The Holy Spirit is also called the Comforter meaning that He will minister to you as you need it spiritually.
Faith in Jesus and the Holy Spirit is our spiritual lifeline to the Father. Living without Jesus is living a meaningless life that will end in physical death. But life with Jesus as the center will be an amazing life of godly experiences with the reward of eternal life after death.
Jesus is quoted in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me.” Won’t you surrender your life to Jesus right now? Why not ask Him into your life today?
