Proverbs of a 36 yr old man
God has shown us undeserved grace by coming to save all people. He taught us to give up our wicked ways and our worldly desires and to live decent and honest lives in this world. We are people of flesh and blood. This is why Jesus became one of us. He died to destroy the devil, who had power over death. But he also died to rescue all of us who live each day in fear of dying. A person can die but once. If death comes now, you will not have to experience it later. Jesus has conquered our great enemy when he rose from the dead and will ultimately destroy death forever. He is the Resurrection and the Life, the one who has removed death’s sting and swallowed it up in victory. The one in whom we are receiving an eternal inheritance beyond our wildest dreams and in whose glorious presence we will experience unsurpassed joy forevermore. Jesus is precious to us. He is our great gain in death. Its time we live like we have never lived before. Jesus has given us the power to live his joyous truth through a new heart and new desires. While death is a curse we bear as fallen humanity, we have the opportunity to truly live righteously before our God. Lord, Do not let the fear of death cause me to resist your will and plan for my life. Let me die daily in a way that declares Christ is gain.
