When a person is sick and the prognosis is questionable whether they will get better, those around that person pray and hope that they make a full recovery. The person lying on their sick bed is only thinking about staying alive; be it consciously or unconsciously, such a person is often said to be “fighting for their life.” All of us in this position would probably “fight for our lives.” The basic human instinct is to live.
Although we are alive today, this life will pass away one day. However, if we want to live, that is, live beyond the end of time: the Last Day, we should be, for lack of a better expression, “fighting for our life.”
There is only one way for us to live beyond the Last Day and this through Jesus Christ, the only Savior who declared, saying: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
