Death, to the believer!

Death, to the believer!

(Mary Winslow)

“I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far!” Philippians 1:23 

Death, to the believer, is but passing out of a world of sorrow and of sin — and entering upon a world of indescribable glory!

If we lived more in anticipation of the happiness that waits us — earth would have less hold on our hearts’ best affections.  “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ — set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above — not on earthly things!” Colossians 3:1-2

  1. well said Steve, blessings

  2. As you get older the truth of what you have written brings Holy Strength to carry you through the decline in the body. The truth in Cor. then becomes your truth….as the body declines so the Spirit rises. Death to the believer is indeed but the passage into the Higher with God. Thank you Steve.

    • Amen Faye!

      As we rely less on the flesh and walk more in step with the Spirit, the hope and anticipation only grows as we look to that Glorious day when we meet him face to face.

      God bless you Faye.

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
