For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.1 Corinthians 15:22-23
Christian, do you really believe this? Do you really believe that even though you will die, you really won’t die?! You will be raised from the dead. When you die, the game is not even close to over. In fact, the game is entering the best level possible–unspeakable joy and eternal pleasures in God’s Presence. There will be no more death, crying, rejection, pain, abandonment, suffering or oppression. Christian, do you truly believe this?! If it’s not true you might as well live it up in this life–eat , drink, and party it up. If this life is all there is, you might as well enjoy it because tomorrow you might be dead. Who knows, you might die today!
But if this resurrection thing is true…and it is…it should change the way you live. Spend your life on Jesus. Give your life for Jesus. Don’t worry about your death–when or how you will die. It doesn’t matter. Your death will be like a millisecond power nap where you will wake up to a world of unimaginable wonder, glory and pleasure.
In Adam you died. In Christ, through faith, you’ve been made alive. Live like it! Death is no longer the enemy, apathy towards Jesus is the enemy. Don’t fear death, fear apathy. Death can’t hurt you but apathy towards Jesus will bring you a slow painful death.
