Choose Life!

Many suffering from chronic illness, as well as their loved ones, can give into an attitude and spirit of death. Despair and wanting it all to end is natural. But this must be refused according to the truth of the Bible, which we take on certain faith. Consider just a few passages.

19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.—Deut. 30:19-20

13 For you have delivered me from death
and my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before God
in the light of life.–Psalm 56:13

25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?"—John 11:25-26

10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.--John 10:10.

17 I will not die, but live, And tell of the works of the LORD.—Psalm 118:17
