What can I do to save my life in the hands of my God?

Q: What can I do to save my life in the hands of my God? — Niyigena

A: Niyigena, I believe the answer is partly found in your question: To save your life, you must entrust it into God’s hands. Jesus tells us that “whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” (Matt. 16:25).

This means that as we die to our old, sinful selves, as symbolized through baptism by immersion, we are resurrected into new life in Christ. As we renew this commitment to Him day by day, we are kept safe in His hands. Even if we should die, we know that this is only a temporary sleep and that when Jesus comes again He will resurrect us and we will live forever with Him.

So whatever you are facing right now in your life, know that you are safe in God’s hands. Fully surrender your will and life to Him and He will never fail you.
