3/26/13 Daily Devotion

2 Timothy 1:9-10 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, [10] but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

If we could write an essay about our Lord, we might entitle it, “The Day Death Died.” When Jesus took His last breath, He was placed within a borrowed tomb, but that tomb was only a temporary placement for Him. On the third day, on the first day of the week, the day that death died, that was the day that Jesus rose from the dead. He conquered death and all understanding of its reality. He changed the outlook of humanity, for now there is the understanding that death is not the end, for death is just the beginning of eternity. We shall pass from our existence within this world, but we will cross into the eternal, eternal bliss in the presence of God or eternal suffering in the confines of Hell. The choice is ours. Where do we want to spend eternity?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, I will be forever grateful for Your conquest of death, and I pray this will be seen through the life I am living for You.
