Today my son’s best friend died; he was brain dead from a car accident this past week. Death, at times, is expected. Death is sometimes a complete surprise. But hardly is Death ever welcome.
One thing is certain: Death is a part of life and we will all experience it. Where will we go?
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? (1Corinthians 15:55)
I HATE DEATH. Let me clarify: I weep for the unsaved. They amble along in life and have little interest in the things of God. There will be time for that later, they think. Then later came.
People are scared of death but Christians that put their faith in Jesus Christ know where their eternal destiny is. Maybe that’s why I grieve for the unsaved. I hate knowing that there is a fiery hell that will welcome them with little fanfare for a life not well spent.
Eternity is a long, long time. And we can decide where we would like to spend it.
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. (2Corinthians 6:2b)
Tomorrow may not come, but death might. Jesus is the only way to salvation, the only way to eternity with Him. There are no short cuts, no other way but through Him.
Grief is for the soul that is lost, but JOY comes in the morning for the child of God.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
