Christ - Our Life

Introduction:  We live in a world filled with death.  We are told that if we eat certain things we are going to die sooner, yet another doctor will come by and say well if you eat this other thing you will have this problem and so on.  If you breath the air here you will die, or if you drink the water over here you will certainly die.  If it’s not these things then it will be the fear of a nuclear attack or snipers or someone robbing your home.  The only hope we have is that we have a Saviour of whom is said that He is life.  What can we learn from the scriptures concerning Jesus Christ and life?
