PostSubject: The Sting of Death is Gone   Wed Sep 30, 2015 12:06 pm

When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:54-57

Death -- We hear almost daily of friends or acquaintances struck down by it without warning. We are almost blase' about the violent, sudden deaths on the evening news. We may callously discuss and analyze the death of a prominent person. But we find it difficult to contemplate our own death.

Death seems so final. It’s an unknown; we don't know what to expect from it. And we know that death can't be cheated. It catches up with everyone.

Depressing, isn’t it? Oh, but for the true Christian, death is not a subject that makes us pull the covers over our heads. In fact, I find that death is spoken of in the Bible as an event to be actually looked forward to! A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth. Ecclesiastes 7:1. In the eyes of the Lord, what's the only way to truly "get a good name?" Receive Christ as your Lord and Savior. He then will be "your righteousness." Follow Him for the rest of your days...and look to Him for all guidance.

As I get older and am gradually losing my physical strength and overall health, I see more and more, that because of Christ’s death and resurrection, because of what's waiting for me in heaven, I don't need to fear death. Christ has truly taken the sting out of death for me. Like an unequipped wasp, death can buzz around and threaten me all it wants, but I won't fear it. The stinger is gone.

INSIGHT: Maybe knowing death's stinger is gone doesn't make us long for our last breath, but it can calm our hearts and comfort our spirits if we're truly in Christ...and He is in us.

Reader's Prayer: Dear Father in Heaven, Thank you for taking the sting out of death. Help me to realize that I must make a conscious decision for You to take the sting out of my own personal death. I realize that Jesus' death on the cross for the forgiveness of my sins takes the sting out of death and I desperately want that blessed assurance for myself today. In Jesus' Name I pray, 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.

I am actually broken in 2 ways over death.
One way I look forward to it so that I can see my family who is gone now, and of course, Jesus, in Heaven.

The other way I do not look forward to it. It's like where you want to live forever sort of thing...

Bob,

Not to break the train of thought here but I'd like us to create a section consolidating all the readers prayers... Smile

That OK with you?
