“You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. And we are witnesses of this fact!” (Acts 3:15, NLT).
My daughter went to a book signing by one of her favorite authors. She loved meeting him, getting her photograph with him and talking about his books. It was a highlight for her and she treasures the signed book. A book with the author’s signature is always more valuable, especially as time goes on.
God is the author of life. In the very beginning, he created all life on the planet from his own life, out of himself. And now he gives his children new life in Christ as they believe and trust him with their physical lives and their souls. As the author, he signs his name on us in the blood of Jesus. God is the author who invites everyone to the signing, will wait for all to come and will never tire. Our lives, already intrinsically valued because we are made in his image, become even more treasured. His signature on our lives makes us priceless.
