From today's Gospel acclamation (cf. Jn 6:63,68):
Your words are spirit, Lord, and they are life;
you have the message of eternal life.
The Word of God is 'life'. We can find the very essence of life itself by immersing ourselves in Sacred Scripture.
Jesus carries with him the message of eternal life. He came so that we may be saved. He died so that we may have life. Death no longer has any hold over us. We will live forever and we must make our choice as to where we will spend eternal life. Our choice simply has to be this: with Jesus in the heavenly kingdom.
