I discovered a TV show that was old and in re-runs. And I liked it so much that I'm catching the old shows
whererever I can find them. It has to do with in court trials, sometimes on unusual subjects, but the arguments are so interesting.
I recently watched an episode in which an elderly attorney who had been rated as one of the best, had grown
old and wanted somehow to be able to live again. He argued that science has improved so much in the past hundred years, that
there's no telling what it will be able to do in the next hundred. For example, he hoped...that if he could have his body
frozen now, that a time will come when he can be revived, to live the life he loved, once more.
Well, he lost his case. Since the law today is that we can't take a human life, simply in the prospect that
it can be brought back to life sometime in the future.
It was a compelling story, but I found myself thinking how he was missing the most important thing in his
life...that we CAN live again, in a life so much better than this one, that no words can express it. And I wondered how many
people in real life, not on a TV show...in real life, who are either ignoring God, or won't let themselves believe in Him.
I have a prayer for people who consider Sunday only a day to be off work. It's difficult to get a person interested
in going to church, if he or she has never experienced it. Of course that responsibility rests with his parents when he's
a child...even as a baby. But let's pray that when the time...possibly only one time...that he feels God's pressing on his
heart, that he'll heed the call, and get ready for that time when he CAN live again. In a new body that will live forever.
