The word, “human” means “lowly” and the word, “being,” means “aware of existence.”

As human beings, we are lowly creatures made from the dust, and we are aware of our existence. It seems that we are the only ones in God’s creation that have the knowledge of existence and our appointment with death.

Hebrews 9:27 KJV
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

And from the very core of our existence, we cry, “Oh, I don’t want to die!” That “will to live” is a strong consolation to Christians because we can appeal to it when we speak to the lost person. We can remind them of that cry from the conscious mind, and ask them to listen to it, because if there was only one chance in a million that the Bible is right when it says that Jesus Christ has abolished death, they owe it to their good senses to open their hearts and at least listen to the claims of Scripture.

2 Timothy 1:9-10 KJV
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, [10] But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
