In today's qt, Jesus says in verse 51, "I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death."
It made me think twice about its meaning. Will I actually never die if I keep his word? What does it mean to keep his word? Is it like keeping a promise? Because the phrasing "keep my word" made me thinking about someone holding true to what they said. I think keep my word in this context means keeping Jesus in my life, and that's through reading the bible and praying. And I think never seeing death means that I will never see Satan in hell after physical death, and that I will not be spiritually dead in this life.
Most important thing is keeping his word.
Application: reread malachi, and pray from noon to noon fifteen
