John 14:19 (KJV)
Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.


It is weird and strange for someone to want to live with a dead person. You live as the Word suggest because you're alive. Therefore you must abide with someone living and Jesus who is also the Word (John 6:63) lives forevermore (Job 19:25).

The unsaved man is dead and hence he does not and cannot live with anything but death and deadworks unless he receives life. This life is found only in Christ (1 John 5:12).

Having accepted Christ (confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and actively trusting in Him) we can be sure that we have life. In order to abide with and in Christ we need to maintain that life by faith and obedience to his word. Death brings deadworks but the Blood of Jesus through His Spirit having cleansed us from dead works (Hebrews 9:14) empowers us unto good works which only those living can do (Ephesians 2:10, 2 Corinthians 9:8). However, if we engage in or return to a sinful lifestyle, we are running a great risk of having decaying body parts. Sin just as gangrene, if left unchecked, can corrupt the whole body with its deadness leading to permanent death. Many have lost limbs and other body parts as a rescue treatment for gangrene. Same as with sin, Jesus admonishes us to cut off that body part as a matter of urgency if it will cause irreparable damage to the whole body from abiding eternally with God (Mark 9:43-47). Therefore examine yourself to know if you perceive any decay in your life.
-Chibo E.C
