At some point we all take our last breath. On this earth, we are distracted with the cares of the world and are tempted to attain for ourselves the glory that our flesh desires.
This physical death includes every person who walks the earth – those who are diligent in exercise and diet as well as those who surf the couch with a remote. Those who pride themselves on the beautiful clique they’ve surrounded themselves with and those who are outsiders, friendless and homeless. It includes those who buy the most advanced technological toys and those who resist ushering in the invasion of the digital age. The list of contrasts within our society and world are endless but be sure of one thing…
Physical death captures us all.
There is more than one place in Scripture where God tell us that this world will perish and along with it every created thing.
For when he dies he will carry nothing away;
his glory will not go down after him.” — Psalm 49:17
I am at Satisfaction Through Christ today sharing about this incredibly important aspect of living a life that actually transforms others. Taking the cue from the apostle Paul’s life, the gospel can either be what we’re known for or something people may know about us.
