THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades.
Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures.
Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said,
"Now don't get mad at me. I know we've been friends for a long time,but I just can't think of your name.
I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is."
Her friend stared at her.
For at least three minutes she just stared at her.
Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?"
1 Cor 15:54
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality,
then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
We are born naked, wet and hungry.
Then things get worse.
To most folk, dying is an awful tragedy.
To the Christian, sometimes, the thought of dying is motivation!
That motivation is to tell someone else how Christ died for me, and
will one day bring me to the place where there’ll be no more dying!
In Christ we have the promise that our mortally corrupt bodies will be changed to incorruptible ones!
In Christ we have the promise that our mortality shall be changed to immortality!
The death most people fear is “swallowed up” in Christ’s resurrection.
And, He has promised all His children they can receive that same “victory!”
Yes, death still has a “sting.”
For, unless Christ returns first, we shall all face it.
But, in Christ, our death shall be “swallowed up” in Christ’s “victory.”
We shall become forever immersed in His eternity of LIFE!
All sorrow shall cease!
Worry shall be no more!
Sickness will pass away into darkness!
Weeping shall turn into eternal joy!
Praise the Lord Jesus for His incomparable gift!
