A Crown of Life - December 8, 2015

Why all the effort to stay fit…to stay alive?  We pop pills, pump pecks, pass on the pie and pursue the polyunsaturates! Why? Because we’re worried about staying alive.

In heaven—that will not be a worry! In fact, you won’t be worrying at all. You won’t worry about your kids getting hurt. In heaven, there will be no pain. You won’t worry about getting old. We will all be ceaselessly strong! Scripture describes heaven as a place where God will wipe away every tear from our eyes. There will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain.

We are not made of steel, we are made of dust. And this life is not crowned with life, it is crowned with death. The next life, however, is different!  Jesus urges us to “be faithful, even if you have to die, and I will give you the crown of life!” (Revelation 2:10).
