Dying, Waking


God meant us to live forever. But sin
has broken everything and now we–
all of us–die.

Jesus came to destroy death. He died on
the cross and was buried-but death
couldn’t keep him dead. On the third
day he burst out of the tomb!

And now death can’t keep us dead either.

The preacher Charles Spurgeon said
that Jesus has turned the tomb into a bed-
and dying into just waking up.

We will still die. But after we die, we will
wake-as if from a refreshing night’s
sleep-and Jesus will lead us by the hand
into Life that won’t ever end.
