Death will soon die!


"...He died over night"

Those were the words my colleague told me as I leisurely took off my coat this morning. "Your patient died overnight..."

As I tried to comprehend the jumble that was coming out of my friend's mouth; flashes of this patient went through my mind. I had admitted him just 2 days ago and after reassuring his family that their husband/father/father-in-law was going to be fine...He was now DEAD!

I was hurting when I heard the news this morning and still hurting as I write this...but Christ has promised me that when "...when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,this Scripture will be fulfilled:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? (1 Corinth 15 vs 55 NLT)

O Lord, how we wait for that day!

Death on earth saddens me, but when I remember what lies ahead of us in eternity, I get encouraged. Sorry to hear about your patient, T.
