Death Loses

Little girl...skullWe are born in the shadow of death. No one gets out of here alive. But 2,000 years ago, Jesus signed death’s death warrant.

On the night before his crucifixion he taught his disciples to live in the light of this new reality. Breaking bread, he handed it to them and said, “I’m offering myself in your place. So that you might live. Never forget this.” (Luke 22:19–paraphrase)

Shadows are made by the absence of light. It’s your choice whether to live in death’s shadow…

Or in the light.

    But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.
    (1 Thessalonians 5:4-5)
