At the end of the day we all die. Therefore, it is not God’s desire to keep our body alive in this life. He is far more concerned with our spirit. That is what lives on eternally. Our bodies will perish but who we are continues for ever. Our life on this earth is notContinue reading “Life”
No more is death to be feared. Jesus defeated death not just once, not just for himself, but for all who choose to believe. There are many things that we can choose to worry about, and do, but death should not be one of them. No longer is death the end. No longer is theContinue reading “Death Defeated”
I stand in the place where dreams come to die Hopes lie round my ankles, trampled, broken Smoke spirals upward from the lights extinguished And darkness falls like the heaviest of burdens The air is heavy with the lethargy of life Eyes vacant, no focus, no glint of joy The distant rumble of the shadowsContinue reading “From the Depths of Despair”

As Christians death need hold no fear. Jesus not only paid the price for all our wrongdoings on the cross He then went on to conquer death. For those whose faith is in Christ, death is now no more than a doorway from the land of the dying to the land of the living.
Ever before us is the strong and certain hope that Christ has conquered death. There is no need to fear for the ones whose faith is in Christ, for He has conquered death and overcome the world.
They say that “where there is life, there is hope”: but the message of Christianity is that where there is death there is an even greater hope.
For the Christian death should hold no fear, for we know the one who has died and come back to life. Jesus has conquered the power of death, we no longer move from life to death but from life to an even greater life.

Jesus makes it very clear that we will have troubles, butContinue reading “Troubles”
