Another Choice

CaptureMy Featured Blogger this week is Larry Paul Brown of LPB – Quest. I chose this brief post because, although for many Easter is already over, to those who grasp its full meaning, it never ended. Paul’s own words tend to be unassuming and down-to-earth, and yet peppered with stealth wisdom. Here, wisdom is on full display.

lpb - quest

“The big problem with death is not only that it puts an end to life, but it also echoes that our existence is a kind of failure: all that we do, or suffer, or work at, and all we have loved, experienced, or endured has been useless and seems to affirm death. The resurrection, life that is no longer subject to death, gives a fullness of meaning and beauty to the day-to-day nature of our existence; every effort, hope, suffering, and desire finds its true significance.”

from the book, ENCOUNTERING JESUS: A HOLY LAND EXPERIENCE by Vincenzo Peroni

“O death where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”

1 Corinthians 15:55

What’s my choice – resurrecting with Christ or dreading the future? What’s yours?
