Death

November 28, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I used to think about death everyday.  Nowadays I just think about death – and my death in particular – during my birthday. 

It sounds morbid to think about death, especially on one’s birthday when the overall sentiment should be a celebration of life, but the fact of the matter is that death is a reality of life.  Thinking about death forces one to reevaluate one’s priorities and serves as a reminder of what’s really important in one’s life. 

Sooner or later we are all going to die. 

We are not meant to live forever in this world, because our true home is not here but in the Heavenly Kingdom of the Father, where He lovingly waits for us to come home to Him when our time comes. 

It’s obviously easier said than done, and all the great ideas and tasks in life usually are. 

But eternal life with the Father is as real as the end of life in this world.  As horrendously painful as it is to lose someone you love dearly, one should be happy that our loved one would be finally going home to rest after a lifetime of work.  They deserve to be happy forever, and for that we should find some comfort and happiness as well.  Someday it will be our time to go home, too, to receive the reward that awaits us on the other side of this life, and we will be reunited with them and with our Father for all eternity. 

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”  (Revelation 21:3-4)

Jesus, I trust in You!
