Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. John 5:25 NIV
Many walk the face of this earth who are dead. Spiritually dead. Their lives are filled with the nothingness which this world offers. Their spirits cannot exceed the here and now.
At one time or another, the chosen hear the voice of Christ calling to them. Their heart yearns for more than this world promises. These chosen seek the Truth, the Truth which can only be known through a relationship with Jesus Christ. These are willing to sacrifice that which this world offers in order to follow the Lord.
