We are the Lord’s
Romans 14:8 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.
Its quite simple for the Christian, death has no bearing on our lives. We live here or we live with Jesus.
Myself included, a lot of Christians have a fear of death, especially because of our love one’s who we would leave behind. We need to remember just as we trust Jesus with our lives, so can our love one’s trust in Jesus. It sort of points out the importance of our responsibility to make sure our love one’s are raised up in Christ Jesus, and also those we need to share Jesus with who are nonbelievers. Maybe even with more determination knowing the days are fewer for The return of Jesus.
We are living in the end of this age and I believe the return of Jesus is definitely closer than when I first believed. But only God knows when that will happen, and I trust God. The beautiful reality is we are the Lord’s.
