“Experiencing death has made me appreciate life more keenly.” Those are the words of twenty-two-year-old Zeng Jia,(Zen Ja) a student from Wuhan, China. She had just spent a lot of money to stage her own funeral. After lying in state for an hour, she got up and joined her own wake. Her bizarre act serves to remind us that, as our Bible teaches, “it is appointed to man …to die.” Jesus, speaking of physical death and eternal life said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, though he may die, shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die…” This young woman knew that she, and all of us, are going to leave this world someday. It is important to invite Christ into our lives, and accept His gift of eternal life. He invites, “if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in.” .
