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!
