Death…. has it really lost it’s sting

There is a verse in the Bible that says  – 1Co 15:55  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

We all know that death has a sting.  After all who wants to die.  I don’t, do you?  According to the Bible the sting of death is sin.  But thanks be to God that He gave us victory!

I was an eye-witness of this victory at a funeral today for a dear friend of mine.  Sonia Day.  Her funeral was a joyous celebration of a life well lived for God.  We rejoiced at her graduation.  Her home-coming.  She is with Jesus.  We sang, praised and thanked the Lord for taking another of his daughters home.  I would have to say the most joyous part was when the pastor gave the altar call, yep at a funeral and two lost souls came forward to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ.

I could just picture Sonia laughing and rejoicing in heaven.  Her life was well lived and the fruit is testimony.  She was always faithful to Jesus.  And now…she is with Him in paradise.

I have never been to such a funeral, it would be so nice if we had more like her’s.  I will miss her deeply, but I am not sad as she is in a better place.  I know the Lord will fill that void in my life and her family with something wonderful.  I long for the day when I can see her again.

Until next time,

M
