All means all

At the end of today's gospel from Luke 20 we hear Jesus's argument of the resurrection of the dead.
That the dead will rise even Moses made known in the passage about the bush, when he called ‘Lord’ the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”

Those four words at the end of Luke 20:38. παντες γαρ αυτο ζοσιν, all to him live (are living),
cause us to refine our thinking about life considerably.  The question isn't really do you want eternal life of not. That question Jesus answers. All live forever.

The question is: Where do you want to live forever? United to God or not.

Both Hitler and Mother Teresa are still alive.  But are they in the same place?

We have until the last moment of our earthly life to make the right choice, but why wait?  Why not start practicing today? Why not practice constantly reminding yourself of God's presence? God is there whether you acknowledge it or not,  but our lives are so much better when we do.

Whether you identify more closely with the Father, or the Son, or the Holy Spirit does not matter, Have you even asked your self which you most closely identify with when you pray?

Start this day, reminding yourself of God's presence. And several times during the day stop and remind yourself again, and again, and again.
