Dying Is(n’t) A Scandal

Juni 21 2020

The Swiss writer, Jean Ziegler, once said: „Death is a scandal! Even as a child I had the determination to fight death with as much life as possible.“ Ziegler may be right; God gave uslife so that we could live it. We want to do this with gratitude and with our whole hearts.  None of us want to just let our lives pass us by. Especially since it is an old biblical fact that „It is set upon man to die.“ Nothing has changed in the statement that Moses made 3500 years ago to

„teach us to remember that we must die in order to become wise. Seventy years are given to us, some even live to eighty.“

Psalm 90:10

Jesus Christ came to earth to take the negative away from the scandal of dying. God himself died on the cross and rose from the dead, so that all who believe in him may also do the same. They can go with him to the father and be resurrected, being given eternal life! Jesus dying is not a scandal but a victory!

“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”

1 Corinthians 15:55

How do you deal with dying?
