The Truth About Dying

April 21, 2012 | 15 comments



If all we get out of Christ is a little inspiration for a few short years, we’re a pretty sorry lot. But the truth is that Christ has been raised up, the first in a long legacy of those who are going to leave the cemeteries.
— 1 Corinthians 18:20 (MSG)

    Great thought…thanks for the reminder.

  2. Joanne Norton

    My heavens! That’s quite a photo. Made me chuckle a bit, and roll my eyes, and wonder… Hmmm?

    Loved it and the scriptural connection.

    I am ready to meet my Lord anytime because I know there are things beyond human comprehension on the other side!

    I am really starting to cherish Eugene Peterson’s lovely translation more and more… Love this!

  5. Sharon O

    But the truth is… as we read more and pay attention. It is like ‘take notice and believe’.

  6. Barbara

    I so love your tagline, “because the way up is down!”

  7. Megan Willome

    That photo is exquisite, and yet sad. I can’t handle cemeteries since my mom died.

  8. Shelly Miller

    Love your creativity with photos and scriptures on Sunday. As I fixate some days on aging, this gives me perspective. Thanks! And hope you have a restful Sabbath.

  9. Deidra

    It’s just a comma, isn’t it? Death. Just a comma before the best part begins.

    I really like how The Message bible really spells it out in plain ol’ American vernacular. Thanks for the reminder! I’m new to ‘Getting Down with Jesus’ and I’m loving it. Thanks for sharing yourself here.

    Hug coming your way…
    a living, bottomless well of hope and inspiration… praise God!

    My mom just went home to be with Jesus last week… I am fixing my eyes on the hope of heaven. My Sunday Scripture post is about eternity and heaven also.

  13. Rona

    What a blessing to wake up and welcome another day! Thank you Heavenly Father!
    Thank you.

  14. Kris

    Yes! Yes!! This! Amen!
