Life in Death


“And now brothers, I will ask you a terrible question, and God knows I ask it also of myself. Is the truth beyond all truths, beyond the stars, just this: that to live without him is the real death, that to die with him the only life?” ~Frederick Buechner

  1. There is enormous evidience for the resurrection in the brilliant, NT Wright’s 900 + page book. History turned on that precious event. To believe that Christ died for our sins and rose on the
    third day is the mark of a Christian. It is the core of our lives as believers. Hallelujah!

  2. When placed against the backdrop of eternity, the Apostle Paul and Fredrick Buechner make perfect sense.
    It sounds like lunacy to the world, but God’s truth often does.

  5. People often wonder why I’m always smiling. They think it’s because I have this ‘sunny’ personality (which I do 😉 but it is because I believe, in something so much bigger than me. Jesus. God. Allah. Grace. Whatever you may call it. I call it believing in something so much bigger than me. Thank you for continuing to name it, in the most beautiful of ways. This quote is everything. Have a wonderful Sunday my friend! Andrea

    I remember being in a liberal church and hearing more than once that Jesus wasn’t resurrected. It was just His legacy that carried forward. Was unable to get people I was teaching to believe in a literal resurrection or in Jesus’ atoning death. There is no power in non-Biblical beliefs.

  8. My life was a train wreck, until I made the decision to believe in Jesus as my Savior and my Lord. ❤

  11. That is a powerful scripture. I always thought you had one ticket to play the game…of life!
    And we’re all on different skill levels too!
