DAILY DEVO...can we live without God?

Can we live without God?

I've never met anyone who considered life to be just a "day in, day out" regimen. Even though somedays it may feel like that. But most people want some kind of connection to a higher being; something spiritual and with purpose.

The Bible teaches that only God provides spiritual life (John 3:16). In John 10:10, Jesus says, "… I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly."

However, with that said, many attempt to find their spiritual life in other places, and not in God. I love today's Scripture reading in John that shows Peter's beautiful perspective on life without God...

(John 6:67) But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life."

Prior to this, Jesus had asked the disciples if they wanted to leave like the others. But Peter, having already experienced the eternal life that Christ offered, did not want to be anywhere else.

The question today is, "can you live without Christ?" If you only know Him on Sunday's, it could be that you have made a chose to live for others "day in and day out" and not eternally for Christ.

I hope that you have experienced Christ in such a way that you couldn't imagine life without Him.
