The Road from Life to Death
The road from life to death is well worn and hard to get off. It starts off with towering mountains, serene lakes, and green pastures because of the memories of life, but ends in nothing, not even a desert. Many of my friends have taken this path.
Without God there is no meaning to life because death is the ultimate winner. It is well known that this universe will most likely end in heat death as all the free thermodynamic energy is used up. Saving the planet is pointless because in the end it can't be saved. Relationships are only of value for the time that we are alive and for what we can get out of it. If nobody can defeat death and death is our ultimate judge, than what value is there? Death does not care if somebody is a murderer or a philanthropist. Death does not care if the environment is saved. Death does not care if there is discrimination. Is there any point to life?
Life is pointless without Jesus Christ because only He has defeated death.
Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 15:55-57).I am so thankful that Jesus has defeated death.
