A New Employer


Charlotte Gilman once said, "Death? Why this fuss about death? Use your imagination; try to visualize a world without death! ... Death is the essential condition of life, not an evil." Her words sound brave, but they don't make sense. A world without death would be wonderful. Imagine a world where you never grow old and die. Nor do you lose those you love. While some in the world may have their thoughts about why death awaits each of us, the Bible tells us that it comes to us because it's a payment for wages that we have earned. It's exactly what each of us deserves, and we are told that we are held captive to the fear of death until we come to the Savior. But since the resurrection, we can have another Employer-Him who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
