Reviving your dead soul - World Mission Society Church of God
Many people living this world, mostly think that we are alive. Of course we are alive, but we should make sure that we are really alive. A man consists of a body and a soul. Here the life that I asked was not the physical life, but the spiritual life. We have obviously the physical life, but what about the spiritual life? Not everyone who is physically living has the spiritual life.
Mt 8:21 Another disciple said to him, " Lord, first let me go and bury my father." But Jesus told him, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead."
If you take this verse as literally, it doesn't make sense. How could the dead bury their own dead? Here the first the dead means those who have physical life but no spiritual life and latter one is the opposite.
In the sight of Jesus, his disciples were people with the spiritual life but the others were people without it. Then what was the difference between his people and the rest?
Jn 6:53~ Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
Mt 26:17~ On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?"...So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
Mt 26:26~ They kept the Passover with the bread and the wine together.
Many people think the Passover is one of Jewish festivals and we don't need to keep it. However, even though Jesus came to Israel he worked as our savior not as a Jewish after his baptism. Moreover he let us deliver his teaching to the end.( Mt 28:19) No matter how people think but God think the Passover is really important feast of God which is very related to our Spiritual Life.
In order to revive our dead soul, we have keep the Passover. Then where can we keep it?
