Does life really go one long after thethrill of living is going for those of us who grew up in the sthat Jack and Diane that John mellancamp Song would come to mindimmediately when I said that some of the lyrics are hold on to sixteen aslong as you can changes come round real soon make uswomen and men. Oh yeah, life goes on only after the thrill of living is go...

...concept is sixteen. Seventeen fifteen that'sliving, but after that the thrill of livings gone, but life continues to go. Is that true, if we're speaking of physical life? Ofcourse, that's true? If we're speaking of physical life,then Lelg after the ages of sixteen seventeen eighteen, a three of Livinlong after those ages, life goes on. But if we're speaking of life in adifferent sense, if we're speaking of life is scripturedefines life God then does wife or the thrill of livinggo on long after our relationship with God as well.

Does life goes on long after that?Thrill is left? I would argue, know that ply if it's about a relationshipwith God that when we have that relationship, there's a thrill to lifeind life itself, but if we ever lost that relationship whichwe can, but if we were then not only with the thrill of livingbegon life itself would be. Gill. Job was going to come to realize this. Hewould come to understand that life has to do with one fellowship with God, not about sixteen, not about seventeen,not about three ils in this life. But life really has to do it's aboutfellowship with God, and that is the thrill of life it sale. We're in job chapter fourteen throughseventeen will be looking at Joe...

Fourteen versus seven through fifteenspecifically- and I want to read that for you right now, for there is hope for a tree when it is cut down that it will sproutagain and if shoots will not fail, though its roots grow old in the groundand it stomp dives in the dry soil at the scent of water, it will flourishand put forth sprigs like a plant, Tet man, dives and lies prostrate. ManExpires and where is it as water evaporates from the sea and ariver becomes parched and dried up? So man lies down and does not rise Til, the heavens, are no longer. Hewill not awake nor be aroused out of its sleep. Oh, that you would hide mysoul in Sheel. Oh, that you would ide me and sheel that you would conceal me until yourwrath returns to you that you would set...

...a limit for me and remember me: If a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my struggle, I willwait until my change Gos. You will call- and I will answer you you, along for the work of your Idians, verse, seven Joe Cottomplate o tree, and he thinks about a tree and hedesires that his life cycle be like the life cycle of a tree in observing nature in watching trees.He's witness that when a tree dies with some more water from that verytree will spring up a new spring will spring up new life that tree tere risesagain in you, Whi...

...from a the death of a tree, a Yeu treethe same tree, the rise es, a new loy he's farting. With that desire that hiswife be like a tree, then he might die and get a reeset with God, whatever 's going on in his life, he'sunderstanding something's, not right with my God. Itlike it's as if God is angry. Ith Me it's as, if I'm an odds with God,Heaven Silent Something's going on and whatever I've done. I just want to pusha recept, let this life and what I'm sufferingthrough. Let me just be like a tree just doues.Let me get a reset with a new life with God, not a new life with children, not a new life with finances, none ofnew life with prosperity on earth...

...that relationship he had had with Godbeforehand. He doesn't have right now that life that thrill of living because of hisrelationship with God i's gone in Heaven silent and he doesn't have-and he said, okay, whatever I've done. Fine just cut me on. Let me just go aead and die and let meget a Resayi back to where I was. Let me go back to that relationshipwith God that enjoyment of God in some ways. This is excellent. Theology fromthis man who lived eight Hundred Years Before Moses wrote the book of genists that our hope is live brought aboutthrough death.

Amazing Theology, I hope, is life brought about through death. This concept moves job. To imagine thathe could emerge from the grave to enjoy a renewed intimacy with the God heloves. He is longing for that relationshipwith God that he once Haid it's that silence of heavy that keeps troublingJoe God has distanced himself from Joe andjobs, mind through silence and Jove so desires to visit with his God again. He would gladly die if such death wouldrestore his fellowship with God. In fact, he would go through everything he hadgone through again if such insure fellowship with God,it's what he saying in verse, worteen...

...do it again, but just have that life again more than a return of his money. Morethan a return of his haile more than a return even of his children, Joe Desires return of his fellowshipwith God. God is job's life and when heexperiences the absence of God, he experiences the absence of life and with the thrill of living go life is go what amazing insight, what a beautiful look into jobe'srelationship, ith God, which is nothing by the way, is pastrelationship. It's nothing compared to the one he's going to have when we getto the end of Joe. The relationship after the trial is somuch greater than before.

That jobe is grateful for such an earthchattering trial. You know no matter what you've gonethrough now, what matter what you've been through? You can have a reestet today, that's the goodness of our God. You may be experiencing the silence ofheaven because of seeit because of trials in your life because of thingsthat you've done and you're like. Oh, if I could just goback and have that relationship with God I had before before I left churchbefore I left go before I see him before. I did that. Remember those days. Remember that enjoyment that life you can press threestead today you canhave it again. That's the beauty of our God and jobwould come to experience that and he...

...would have greater life than he everhad before, because it was closer to God than he ever was before. Life does go on and it goes on. Because of. Why can I encourage you, no matter whereyou ware, to enjoy life today and, if you're not enjoying thatpresence of God, and so many of you are, but if you're, not just press recent, just say God, I want it back, go startreading the Bible when Jo start praying we're going to we're going to get itback because that's what God wants he wants to give us lie. What a greatlesson on the pages of scripture today well to Morrow will be in job chaptereighteen through twenty. I look forward to seeing you then let me close the SUPfather. Thank you for this wonderful life lesson from a tree. So many of ushave seen a tree that shut down cut Dow...
