God Is God Of The Living

For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him. (Luke 20:38)

This passage is a validation that there is in fact an after-life.  God is not God of the dead.  He is the God of the living.  One primary reason why some have not accepted Christ and the Gospel is because they feel like there is nothing after they die.  They feel as if death is the end.  Death is only the end of this life as we know it.  But there is a life that will last throughout eternity.  Jesus said he was going away to prepare a place for us that where he was, we would be with him.  John 14:2-3.  Paul wrote to Titus that God promised eternal life before the world began.  He also wrote that God cannot lie.  Titus 1.  In John 10:28 Jesus says I give them eternal life and they shall never perish.  It is a joy to know that even though this earthly tabernacle my dissolve, we will never perish.  And of course in that well known passage of John 3:16, the Bible declares whosoever believes in Jesus shall never perish but they shall have everlasting life.  We can look to that life with confidence that even then, God will be our God and we shall be His people.  As we look forward to that life, we can look to Christ in this life.  Knowing that when we accept Him as Lord and Savior, death is an exit from a finite life and an entrance to an infinite and eternal life.
