So Christian, the big day is coming. The dirt nap, the big send off, the shuffling off of this mortal coil, the big sleep: our death.
So, are you looking forward to it? Do you yearn for it?
In the news right now is at least 20 dead at a church in Texas.
Are you ready for that send off? Are you ready to meet your maker?
Jesus conquered death. It no longer holds power over you. The Apostle Paul said “to live is Christ, to die is gain!”
We leave behind a broken and battered world. We leave behind broken relationships and incomplete knowledge of each other. We leave behind evil and violence and torture and pain and anxiety and fear.
So, yes it is gain. So until then let us live free of the fear of death. For death to this life means to rise to new life, an imperishable life. Life eternal joined to the source of all Goodness and Life.
Soli Deo Gloria
