Do you understand that Jesus makes known to us the path of life?  In other words, there is a path that leads to spiritual life, energy and excitement.

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  (Ps 16:11)  God shows us—continuously—the path of life.  We’re talking about abundant life (Joh 10:10) in the here and now, as well as eternal life.  (Mt 19:29; Joh 3:15)  Jesus reveals this path to us.

In the path of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.  (Pro 12:28)  We who have accepted Christ are made righteous in Him, therefore the path that we walk is the path of righteousness.  In our path, there is no death of any kind, but only the life that is in Christ Jesus.

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”  (Joh 5:24)  All believers have passed from death into life:  abundant life now and eternal life when we vacate our earthly bodies.  We move from life to life after accepting Christ!

And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.   (Rom 6:13)  We are alive to God and alive to righteousness.  (1 Pet 2:24)

. . . but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel . . . (2 Tim 1:10)  This passage affirms the fact that following Jesus puts us on the path of life.

We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.   (1 Joh 3:14)  One fruit of our salvation that grows along the path of life is that we learn to love our neighbors. (Mt 19:19) 

We have spiritually, and in actuality, passed from death to life in accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.  Praise God!
