Just as Jesus' death was our life, all 'currency' comes from that, in some way. When a good man dies, great power is released into the field of time. Consider: Dead metals, dead saints (indulgences), dead Presidents. 'My life for yours,' some say in the Lord's Supper. Etc. 'Love makes the world go 'round,' and 'Greater love hath no man....'. 'How to love your clients': Jay Abraham.
And He was raised for our justification, so that when we lose our respective lives, we save them.
There is some key in the above that should be taught. Service to others is a circumcision of time.
PS: ‘…IS our life…’. The life of the world.
