Life is a war which ends only in death (whether victorious or not). There is no other resolution. What I ask is this: would you choose a victorious life, knowing death will never come? Or, will you choose a life of defeat, knowing death will never come? Or, will you choose a life of defeat, without knowing that your trials will not end with the expiration of your physical self? Even for the most victorious, holy, and righteous person, life is war everlasting.
What better gift than to live in perpetual victory!
