Scripture Readings: Revelation 7:9-17; Psalm 149; 1 Corinthians 15:50-58; Luke 6:20-26
“We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed”. Our world has got its ways to deal with the inevitability of death. The early church did too. In fact, several of the letters of the New Testament address the issue. For believers, our great hope is eternity. Any approach to life that seeks heaven on earth will be disappointed. Rather, a proper understanding of death as defeated by Jesus has the ability to make us fearless in the face of the inevitable.
