Meanderings through the Mysteries of Life, Time and Death
The value of time is beyond computation. . . . The human family have scarcely begun to live when they begin to die.
– E. G. White, Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 342.
Neither science nor philosophy can explain the mystery of life. For it is “through faith that we understand that the worlds were framed by the wordof God, so that things which are seen are not made of things which are visible.” Hebrews 1: 2; 11: 3.
Life is associated with light. The life of God is the life of man. The beloved disciple wrote concerning Christ, saying, ‘In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.” John 1: 4. If we have no light from the Sun of Righteousness [Malachi 4:2] we have no life in Him. . . . Humanity has in itself no light. Apart from Christ, we are like an unkindled taper, like the moon when her face is turned away from the sun; we have not a single ray of brightness to shed into the darkness of the world. But when we turn toward the Sun of Righteousness, when we come in touch with Christ, the whole soul is aglow with the brightness of His divine presence [through the indwelling and infilling of the Holy Spirit].”– Ibid, Sons & Daughters, p. 281.
