Christ's Presence in Us Gives Meaning to Life

Question:  How is it possible to be in the presence of Christ and remain unchanged?

Answer:     Unbelief 

35  Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more (at any time). 
36  But [as] I told you, although you have seen Me, still you do not believe and trust and have faith. 
37  All whom My Father gives (entrusts) to Me will come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, no never, reject one of them who comes to Me]. 
38  For I have come down from heaven not to do My own will and purpose but to do the will and purpose of Him Who sent Me. 
39  And this is the will of Him Who sent Me, that I should not lose any of all that He has given Me, but that I should give new life and raise [them all] up at the last day. 
40  For this is My Father’s will and His purpose, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up [from the dead] at the last day.
 - John 6:35-40 (The Amplified Bible)

  • God the Father had a plan and a purpose for sending Jesus to earth.
  • Jesus came in obedience to the Father's plan.
  • Jesus carried out every plan in every detail that the Father ordered.
  • He gave to anyone who was willing to believe and receive everything the Father planned for Jesus to offer.

Your name is listed in that plan!
