My prayer ,earnest cry that we as a people of a wonderfull holy God learn to love one another like Jesus loves us! Life central to the christian is forgiveness & love.God made man have a soulGen.2:7,16-17.So we realize our time here is temporary.
We need to show genuine christian love.Be kind one to another. Love of Jesus!

There is no real life without Jesus Christ in your life! Lost people are really dead people. [God is more alive than you or I]. Must be raised from the dead and when you are, the change is astronomical. Real freedom is not doing what you want to do, but is the ability to hear from the living God and do what He wants you to do, by His power and strength. God does all the work. All that is required from the believer is a willing mind and heart, which God GIVES TO YOU.

What is life?
John14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Chist is Life!
Mt16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
If we have Christ we have life, but if we do not have Christ we do not have life!

The "Author of LIFE" wants to "restore" us to be free thinking individuals and be lovers of all that is good (Adam was "in His image") so that we can establish an identity of being master of our own lives (God wants us again to be a "living, breathing, soul" the way He made us).
Titus 1:8 "lovers of goodness, master of himself".
1 Peter 5:10 "will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you".
Worshiping God is not about following instructions (like the 'obey/disobey' paradigm/reference point), it's about the true person being reconnected to the Creator and honoring Him properly (666 is not the number of a "living, breathing, soul", Rev. 13:18).

What is man that thou art mindful of him? (Heb 2:6) Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? (Mt 6:25)
Psalm 39:5 - You have made my days a mere handbreadth, the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each mans life is but a breath.
Job 7:7 - Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath.

duane, there is another answer which is more correct. The answer is Jesus Christ, He is life.
"Jesus said to him, "I AM the way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6).
Sis. Shira, good point you brought out. The right hand of God is all power. It is also the "Right" way. Also He seats at the "right" hand of the Father, also the wheat will be on the right, the tares on the left. But I did not see which thief was saved, the one on the right or the one on the left.

LIFE is Salvation...there is no other answer.
HE is the way, the truth and the life. HIS name is Salvation.

"according to scripture, there was one on the left and one on the right, but it does not tell us which one was the reviler. from what i can tell." Same here.
Mt 27:38 "Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left"
Mark 15:27 , Lk 23:39-43
When I read Shiras post I did not check which one was on right or left, what came to mind is (God) works salvation with (His) righteous right arm. I havent found those exact words in that order, but the thought of His right arm and salvation had been in mind prior to coming across the post.

//...the man on the left side died in his sin.//
shira, i don't think we should make that connection to how right and left is made in scripture.
according to scripture, there was one on the left and one on the right, but it does not tell us which one was the reviler. from what i can tell.
the latin word for left is sinistra, where we get the word sinister. the greek word does not make such demonization.
---aka on 12/29/12|
chria, the right hand is the reason I said what I did about the man on the right side. the man on the left side died in his sin. I do know the right hand has a message for anyone who wants to study it. thanks for your comment.

" the man on the right ---shira4368 on 12/27/12
That IS interesting. Note the many references in scripture concerning Gods right hand or right arm. Just a few:
For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them
Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.
he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength

geraldine, we are suppose to be intelligent beings but no one can figure out the complexity of the human body. all I know is God made man out of clay and breathed life into him. everyone is not a christian who is born. we all are not going to heaven. God prepared a way to heaven and it is thru Jesus Christ...He is the Door. ever heard the song "the man on the right side." he was the man right of Jesus on the cross. He was saved before he died and was with Jesus in paradise. wow, I love this little nugget...the man on the right was invited to go inside. the man on the left died without Christ.
---shira4368 on 12/27/12|
I believe life is kinship, beings born from other beings and using free will to relate to fellow beings. And the highest part of life is knowing and practicing kindness to other living beings.
---Geraldine on 12/26/12|
no one can explain life. God made us for His honor and glory then adam and eve sinned. We consider life to be precious but we still can't explain it. dr's go to school for years and still can't explain some things. I am in awe how the heart can pump for 74 yrs and still be going strong. how the lungs pump oxygen to the blood. It is amazing to me but we still can't explain it.

jim and Forrest, do you know parsnips?
Or maybe you know why he asked, this?
If not than be truthful with yourselves and him.
Just saying look at the question.
Do you see humor in it?
I dont, I see someone asking, what might be very important to him!
I hope you see my point!
Parsnips, know this!
Before we loved God he loved us!
Life is more about having peace in, yourself!
I have found this peace in myself.
I believe it was given to me by God.

Beloved, I'd say JESUS is the family, I never had. My grandmother loved me, nobody else much.
Because I have never known love like God's love.Even when I been in trouble still see His love! I have lost everyone who claim they loved me.Not always their fault / life goes on / adaptable/ God doesn't go back on His promises! And also,yes he taught me to forgive & he gave me a song in my heart.He gives me strength even when I am worn.I talk to Him at night, he listens tells me be strong,defeat a word we never use.Thankyou! JESUS goodnite! ELENA

It is this!
You should love your brother's the way I have loved you!
I hope you know I'm not talking about me right!
Something so simple, right!
Yet, I know. No one can even do this!
For this is the fulfillment of the law!
And if it's not because of you, then it's is because of him.
That is to say, your own Brother!
Talk about needing Christ!

100 words???? Only one word is needed. JESUS
---KarenD on 12/21/12|
"Explain life in 100 words."
Life is the state of one possessed of vitality and/or animation. The dictionary defines life as "The animate existence or period of animate existence of an individual:" Strongs defines it as "the vital force which animates the body and shows itself in breathing" True life "as the absolute fulness of [this existence], both essential and ethical", belongs to God, and is granted us through Jesus, who clearly stated "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
