There is a big difference between motion and life. A person can be in motion without having life in him; and he also can have life in him but not movement. Man is motion and life. The universe with its many galaxies, stars, and creatures is full of movement but not all of them have life. Life is only in God the creator. God is life.
Every movement in the universe is doomed to die, but life is eternal. Every motion has an end no matter how great it is, but life has no end. Life is eternal because life is God, and God is eternal. Motion will pass away but life will not. Man has in him motion and life; motion is limited by space and time, but life is not limited by time or by space. Human movement is doomed to die and has an end no matter how long it lasts, but the life that is in him is eternal.
Christ has come to give us life, and to sanctify the movement that is in us. Christ gives eternal life because He is the Son of God and life is from God. Without Christ, our motion is doomed to inevitable death; and with Christ we have eternal life. There is no option in between: either death or life.
Sanctify the motion that is in you through life from Jesus Christ. Do not seek immortality in this world, in the time of this universe, by extending your motion in time forever, because even time is destined to die and has an end. Immortality is only in eternal life in Jesus Christ; there is no immortal and eternal life in time because all of time is not eternal.
