When we accept Christ’s gift of salvation, we no longer have to worry about eternal death. In the beginning of today’s reading Jesus is talking about the final resurrection, but the truth still remains that we are alive in Christ through eternity. Jesus says to the religious leader in Luke 20:38, He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive. If all there is after this life on earth is death, then it would not matter who God is, why He created us, or whether He loves us or not. But God loves us through eternity because we will be alive.
