Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll
 
For Facing Our Own Death
by Charles R. Swindoll

"I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die."   
John 11:25–26

Our Father, this is a sacred moment because we all must answer the question, "Am I ready to die?" And not until we're ready to die are we truly ready to live.

We acknowledge that death is the last thing we want to think about, but thank You for bringing us face-to-face with reality. Thank You for the gift of living on earth and the reminder that our days are fleeting. Make us ready for the harsh moments that are before us, calm our spirits, and remove our fears.

Thank You for Jesus Christ, who is the answer beyond the grave. This day, we acknowledge Him as Lord and Savior of life and death.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever.

For Christ is risen indeed. In His name we pray. Amen.
