3/27/13 Daily Devotion

Romans 6:9-10 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. [10] The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

Our conception of death is directly related to our understanding of life. We understand that life has a point of beginning, thus it must have a point of ending. A beautiful flower will remain so only until its appointed end arrives. A family pet is born and adored, until it departs and brings sadness. Even our automobiles have a moment of conception and a point of death. While all things have a point of entrance and a place of release, there is life for humans after death, and after this death will come no more. After our removal from existence within this world, after we stand before God in judgment, we shall live eternally and never taste death again. Some believe that this is true of those who enter into Heaven, but not for those who enter into Hell. They believe that we will be punished for our sins then relieved of our existence yet again to suffer no more. This could not be farther from the truth. Once we cross from this world into the eternal, we shall exist for all eternity, but where we exist is completely up to us. Where are your actions carrying you into eternity?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, I understand that as I depart this life, I will live for all eternity. Help me prepare myself to live with You and not within the pain and suffering of Hell.
