Marley Was Dead, To Begin With…

“Jesus said unto her, “I am the resurrection and the Life. He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live…” John 11:25

Like Jacob Marley, have we died and become incapable of doing the thing that God wants us to do? Marley was filled with anguish and regret, and yet he was not beyond redemption. His visit to Ebenezer Scrooge was still able to work great good in the world.

We may have blown it in life and joined Marley in heartache and torment, the death that results in turning from God’s will, but we have not yet slipped beyond recovery.

A new year is awaiting us, a year that offers redemption. Even now God’s perfect will is awaiting us. Even now we can turn from “the body of this death” and work God’s mighty will for good in this world.

Will we?
