Death Dies

We sat listening to the organ whose music filled
the church. As the melody rose and the stops were
pulled out, I could feel the sound throughout my
body. This is how I feel as I read the climax of
this chapter. Listen:

"When the perishable puts on the imperishable,
and the mortal puts on immortality, 
then shall come to pass the saying that is 

"'Death is swallowed up in victory'"
                                                       (Isa 25:8)
"O Death, where is your victory?"
"O Death, where is your sting?"

Isaiah wrote, "death will be swallowed up in
victory, but Paul wrote, death is swallowed
up in victory. Jesus conquered death then,
now and forever. Oh, yes, our earth suit
will die and return to dust, but not our souls.

Dearest reader, one day, perhaps soon, we
will be re-united with family and precious
friends. We will receive a new body--that
looks like us--a younger, slimed down,
unwrinkled, glorious YOU!
