the fountain of life

Psalm 36:9 "For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see."
I think another word for Christians might be "life seekers", or "students of life". In Christ we find answers to our biggest questions: "Who am I?" "Why am I here?" "What is life all about?" "Where is history headed?" "Why is there evil and how can good triumph?" We are curious creatures who are born without operating instructions and raised by folks only one generation ahead of us. But in the Lord we find the answers, the guidance and the eternal relationship that begins here and continues in a place beyond time. If we are honest we will admit that we don't have the answers to the big questions inside of ourselves. We can live a life of distraction, pursuing temporary pleasures and gains...but that life will end and those pleasures will cease also. Deep within we all want to be students of life, seekers of truth, finders of that which is lasting. We find great hope in the words of Jesus from John, chapter 5, verse 26: "The Father has life in himself, and he has granted that same life-giving power to his Son."
blessings to all the students of life,
Rob Smith
