Good morning all,
The word of the day is "obsequy." It is amazing how our entire spiritual lives as X-tians is built around the fact that a man died, and then three days later rose from the grave. When i first heard that i was like whaaaat! But since i have moved through my journey as a believer Christ it continues to become more and more clear that our God is that big. God is big enough that he sent his only son to die for our sins on the cross.
We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God.
My question is: are you living in the awesome conviction that JC's death brought now only him life with the Father, but also gave you eternal life in the same way? My prayer is that you share your faith with someone else and explain why it is you chose to believe in the one who will never die. We can be sure that as we live in the love of God that we will never experience a forever obsequy, or funeral... but only a temporary move from this world to the next.
Praying for you,
