If you will listen obediently to what I say and keep My covenant, out of all peoples you'll be My special treasure. The whole earth is Mine to choose from, but you're special: a kingdom of priests, a holy nation. Exodus 19:5(The Message)....... The difference between a contract and a covenant is that the law binds both a contract and a covenant, but only the covenant is bound by love. The exchange we made with God is legally binding, but because of His love for us, we don't need to show Him the contract. Likewise, we have no need to be threatened by fear; instead let us be motivated with love!!! It is the right time now to do the right thing. He did not call us to be right...He called us to be kind!!!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
