    JW Fanning is considered to be the Father of Leadership Developmet in Georgia. Today’s Text reminds me of one of his favorite sayings, “May you be alive as long as you live.” He was referring to the fact that some people go through life vertically dead. They are alive, but there is no life or light in them. He was also fond of saying, “life is in session are you present.” I am not sure that Dr. Fanning was thinking of this text when he said these things, but I think these statements refer to the same thing Jesus was talking about.

    When we are born physically, we are born spiritually dead in our sin (Ephesians 2:1). We are alive but there is no life or light in us. When we accept Jesus and His Word, and we are born again. We are made alive in Him; His light is in us; and we will never die (eternal life). If we don’t accept Him and believe His words, we are just vertically dead. May we all be alive as long as we live!
