Death. Does. Not. Win!

 

I had such nice words picked out

I had been planning them all week

I was going to talk with them through

Job and David and Jesus and Peter and Paul

but when I stood there

beside that dark hole

and that horrible

wooden

box

I couldnt

I

just

couldnt

I

could

only

cry

 

But here

here is what I would have said

if I could have said it

 

Job

“I know that in my flesh I shall see God!”

 

David

“I shall live in the house of the Lord forever!”

 

Peter

“You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God!”

 

Paul

“Nothing can take us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord!”

 

Jesus

“I am the resurrection and the life, whoever believes in Me will never die!“

 

for all who love Jesus

for all who will call upon His name

Death. Does. Not. Win!

 


 

Job - Job 19:26

David - Psalm 23:6

Peter - Matthew 16:16

Paul - Romans 8:29

Jesus - John 11:25-26
