The Light in the land of the living

Jesus is the light in the land of the living

One of the verses that kept me going during the most difficult times of my life was the following: Psalm 27:13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. That phrase "land of the living" kept me going for it gave me hope that even in this life God is good to us.

Then this morning I rejoiced as I read the following verse which came as a vivid reminder.
Psalm 56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

Jesus is the Light of the living, in the land of the living.

Using the red letter style, watch what Jesus said about himself in John 12:46
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

Are you walking in the Light of the living, in the land of the living, today?

For suffering fellow believers, I say:
Take courage my friend, for Jesus is the hope in the land of the living, today and every day.

the archaic New International Version

If you've ever believed for a moment that the new Bible versions are easier to understand than the King James Bible, dare to check this comparison out between the NIV and the KJV.
Come on now, be objective and check it out.

My assistant pastor often says that the Bible versions issue is the only one where a man is called an idiot by being told he couldn't understand the KJV and he simply replies "oh ok, I guess you're right". And that's proof that there's something spiritually wrong there.
