Deathless

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 7:53 am

Revelation 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.

When tragedy strikes, I don’t have any easy answers.  There is no slick reply to the question, “why does God let this happen?”, or if there is I’ve not heard it yet.  All I know is that You mourn along with us, that You know how we are feeling.  This wasn’t part of Your plan.  This is a world slowly fading, as is everything on it.

But there is a new world, where we will be with You.  In that world there is only Your law at work, everything according to Your will.  The things that grieve us on earth no longer have any power.  Yours is a deathless kingdom – You conquered it through the cross.

Lord give me compassion for those suffering in this world and a strong hope for the next.
