Not Every Man Really Lives

William Wallace’s battle speech From Braveheart gets a lot of play, but do you remember this little gem from later in the movie?

I was reminded of this scene over the weekend, while visiting my home church in Colorado. The memorable line is, “Every man dies. Not every man really lives.”

Think about this in the context of 1 Peter 4: 12-14.

“Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.”

…If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed…

We live in a world of sin, and we suffer for it. But we live under a freedom given to us by Christ. This freedom means that we no longer live under a slavery to sin. We are free to really live.

We have all died to our sins. Now Jesus has set us free to really live. In our sufferings we are able to bring more glory to God.

Anyway, check out the video. it’s good stuff. Except for that kissing junk. Eww, cooties.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
