PostSubject: DEATH'S STING IS GONE   Thu Mar 13, 2014 11:05 am

Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 CORINTHIANS 15: 55, 57

We hear almost daily of friends or acquaintances struck down without warning. We've grown indifferent about the evening news reports of violent deaths. We may callously discuss the death of some famous or prominent person. Yet we find it difficult to contemplate our own deaths.

Death just seems so final, so unknown. We know that it catches up with everyone eventually but we don't know what to expect from it. For many, the subject causes depression and melancholy.

For the believer in Jesus, however, death is not a subject to make us pull the covers over our heads. In fact, death is spoken of in the Bible as an event to be looked forward to! The Apostle Paul wrote: For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21

Because of Christ's death and resurrection, true followers of Christ, along with Paul, understand dying to be "gain". The Bible tells of the joy and rest that await Christ's followers in heaven. They need not fear because Christ truly has taken the sting out of death and replaced it with victory.

Insight: What are my thoughts on death? Am I alive in Christ so I do not fear death? In fact, am I so alive in Christ do I look forward to the day when I will meet Him face to face?

Prayer: Help me to understand this Lord God. In fact, give me the intense desire to receive Jesus Christ as my Savior and follow Him as my Lord. I too want this peace as Paul had...that to live is Christ and to die is gain. In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
