You have an infinity to live and that unlimited life begins today.
Living in long-held assumptions because we choose to.
There's a false self and a real self; a false life and a real life. Both are a form of life. The latter kind is a life in which we have been rescued from the lies of the and false assumptions of the Father of Lies and drawn into the realm of the Father of Light. This is a state of unlimited life that expands exponentially when we are willing follow the fullness in Jesus that is the inheritance of the sons and daughters of God.

We can, so to speak, live our lives in a bottle – like a model ship that is a piece of art but never gets to be a real ship in the ocean of life. We surround ourselves with an invisible wall that excludes growth and life because we are addicted to our own ideas. We have accumulated well developed fictions and proof texts to keep the truth at bay: The truth that unlimited truth and life is not in our bottle but in the Christ of God. Because of this we live in a kind of coma, never fully human or fully alive. Often this is because we cling to an identity that is more precious to us than life – I mean the life of God. Yet because of our ‘trance’ we think it is life. The best thing that could happen to us would be for this ‘bottle’ to be dropped on the concrete and shattered into a thousand pieces. Then in Christ we can build a new world view and a new us. Jesus called this being born again.
The Son of God was born into the world as a human baby so that all who would have Him would become sons of God - sons not in the natural but sons in spirit and in truth because in Jesus we and our Father would become one.
