What if COVID-19 would his and kill us this year? The year 2021 is riskier than other years in our lifetime. Big governments tell us that. True or not, we must prepare spiritually for any eventuality. We could be hit anytime since COVID-19 is unseen—it is unpredictable as lightning particularly in countries with poor hospital equipment and resources. Where shall we go should this virus put us to sleep forever? The first question which a sensible old person—taking maintenance drug—should ask while in the hospital bed is, “Can I get out of this place alive?”

We Need to Know More About the Born-Again Experience

MOST PEOPLE DISMISS Christ’s message of our eternal life in heaven as it is too good a teaching to be true. Life after death is just beyond the radar of our earthly minds. People died, and no one returned to tell the story. It’s how negative we are about the Gospel. For even though Christ resurrected, we persist in rejecting His Word. It is the core of this book: “Born Again Christ’s Version: Understanding the Biblical Born-Again Experience.”

The Christian Doctrine of Finding True Happiness

Charles Spurgeon once said, “Those who are ‘beloved of the Lord’ must be the most happy and joyful people to be found anywhere upon the face of the earth.” This truth is proven by the born-again Christians. The fake Christians cannot experience real happiness with Christ since they don’t belong to Jesus. The apostle Paul said that only those indwelt by Christ’s Spirit belong to Christ. (Rom. 8:9) The joyfulness of God’s people is experienced by Christ’s followers whom our Lord imparts His own peace. It is the Christian doctrine of finding true happiness: The peace of Jesus and the hope of eternal life which our Lord gives to those who are His. (John 10:27-30)

Meaning of Life and How Every Minute Counts

Life’s Meaning is not Pleasure or Fame ▸

The real meaning of life lies in its perpetual nature—its permanence and everlastingness. Christ came to prove our body’s resurrection after death. Both our soul and body were created to last forever. Life, therefore, is not pleasure, achievement, fame, travel, good health, longevity, or other similar matters we experience since all these will pass away. Rather, it is how we can defeat hell—our natural home after death given our lack of interest in heaven and the things of God! It is how we can be forgiven and saved; it is how to enter heaven and live there forever together with Abraham, Jacob, the angels of God, and Jesus Christ, our Lord. It is the meaning of life: our immortality! Anything less than that is worthless (not worth spending all our time and strength for!) because of death.

Of the Higher Level of Peace and Happiness in this Life

Christian rejoicings even in times of sorrow are flooding the Internet through websites, social quotes, poetry, or graphic images. The true followers of Christ experienced a higher level of peace and inner satisfaction. It explains Paul’s cadence of the word rejoice in Philippians 4:4: “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!” Thousands of born-again Christians were persecuted, some beheaded, by ISIS, for example, but the former didn’t recant or join Islam. Instead, their love for the risen Jesus grew. Christ’s presence in the heart has made Christianity different and without equal. “Therefore if anyone is in Christ,” wrote the Apostle Paul, “he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” (2 Cor. 5:17) Let the unbelievers mock or cast insult upon the name of Christ through harassing and victimizing His followers. But even amidst persecution, born-again Christians increased in number even in Middle Eastern countries where the Bible is banned. A higher level of peace and happiness in this life is possible in Christianity. But you need to seek Christ sincerely like one seeking help in the hour of disaster. You need to search in your heart the Spirit of the Founder of the Christian faith, Jesus Christ, our Lord. “However,” wrote the Apostle Paul, “you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.” (Rom. 8:9) Have Christ’s Spirit by believing, then have His joy and peace!
