Let me break it to you: you’re gonna die.
Death is such a taboo subject. People pretend it’s not there. “Eww, make it go away!” If you talk to a speeding driver about death, he’ll slow down. People assume that death always slows us down and no one wants to be slowed down. Death is discouraging right?
I disagree. Death should motivate us. It should encourage us. Here’s why: if I’m aware my time is limited, then I better get busy making the most of it, shouldn’t I?
But how do you make the most of it? Christ made the most of life & death this way:
For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Rom 5:10
Are you spending your life helping others be reconciled to God? What are you waiting for?
