Scripture: Genesis 3:1-5
This week our Pastor spoke about death. The topic of death is one I think most of us try to avoid, especially in the church. If you’d like to read the sermon for yourself, the link is above. Below are a few highlights from the sermon that I felt were important and worth remembering and thinking more about.
- People die because of sin. “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) With sin comes separation from God, and with separation comes death.
- Believes who die go to be with Christ. “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43)
- Jesus tells us that those who die without knowing Christ will be horribly separated rom God for all of eternity. (Matthew 25:41)
- The tree of life is in the beginning of God’s story, and it returns in the end. (John 22:1-2)
