“O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” 1 Corinthians 15:55
Even just looking at the word makes most shudder.
Honestly, I have felt really apprehensive to write about this topic because its some deep stuff, but I know it is something that we all will face someday. It’s taboo and some think pretty morbid, but it is important to discuss.
As Christians, we KNOW that we will get to go Home to HEAVEN when we leave this earth. But it’s still kind of freaky to know that we will go through this transformation, and we never know when it will happen.
I once heard that there are SO many far worse things in life than our own physical death. Losing our loved ones, being physically assaulted, being paralyzed, being abused, seeing the constant hatred in this world, and the list goes on.
I have fears, but death is no longer one of them. I know where I am going and even though I am sure my body and instincts will be fighting it as I one day leave this world, but my soul will be totally at peace. It is the most beautiful and crazy thing I have ever found myself to believe, and it’s taken me some time to get to this point but I am thankful for it. I love life, and I pray that I do not die soon, but if it happens I want people to know that I am okay. I get to go be with Jesus, in the most beautiful place, ever created…how bad could that possibly be?
If you were to die tomorrow, are you confident in knowing where you are going? Do you feel peace or panic?
Jesus died on a cross for your sins and mine. God gave his Son as a sacrifice so that we may know Him, and know that there truly is no death when we put our faith in Him.
If you’re panicking, it is NEVER too late to turn to Him right now.
Find peace y’all. Jesus loves us more than our words can say and in Him there is no true death.
Thank you Jesus, you’ve set us free.
