If you just happen to find this site, I want to welcome you. The theory of evolution may argue your encounter is purely by chance or random. I want you to know that the biblical triune God is all powerful, omniscient, omnipotent, and is the creator of the universe. From humanistic perspective, the universe and its components are random and how there is no significance or meaning embedded in them by supernatural being. Have you thought about how human beings use random sampling to study and gain understanding of human behavior and society? They infer from random sampling and inform us ways we can live meaningful lives.
We can gain insights from random samples of a population and improve human lives. Random sampling (scientific method) derived from conscious beings (researchers or scientist) that made decisions to study specific environment to conduct research? If the universe did not derived from random chance, could it be that conscious God placed components of the universe in a way that we can benefit and survive for thousands of years? Think about your birth? Did your parents randomly conceive you or did they purposefully engage in sexual activity or utilize other forms of conception to bring you into this life?
In John 12:1-26, Jesus Christ addressed his disciples and other people about his eminent death. He admonished them about the significance of priority and preference. Any one who wants to follow and depends on Jesus Christ must be willing to die when it is necessary and such beliefs must be in harmony with the Bible. Eternal life must be the highest preference over earthly life. Jesus Christ emphasized that dying for Him brings the ultimate blessings of God. The effective way to live in this world is to continue to prioritize eternal life perspective and focus less on materials things that do not result in the glorification of triune God.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
The corn represented human life and how death was necessary to bring forth great fruits that glorify God. In one sense, Jesus was saying that his death was mandatory to bring or draw people to Him. The death and resurrection of Jesus has given me eternal life. On other hand, Jesus required people to follow and embrace his words in the Bible. Trusting and depending on Jesus Christ required the willingness to live in the world and choose to die for Jesus Christ when necessary.
Jesus explained the significance of depending, trusting, and loving him above all. Jesus Christ demanded that anyone who is receptive to follow Him must be ready to be slave or servant.
26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
Do you want to be where Jesus Christ is? If yes, Jesus Christ is trustworthy and truthful all the time. Examine yourself. If you are being convicted about the necessity of embracing Jesus Christ, be obedient and surrender your life by confessing your sins and asking God to cultivate your relationship by serving and loving biblical triune God in your walk daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. May Christ Jesus grant you grace and mercy.
