Daily Fountain 2017 - No More Death




Wednesday May 3

Bible Reading:     1 Cor. 15: 50 - 58
Topic:         No More Death

The mystery of changing our earthly body to a glorious body will occur within a brief moment.

Our transformation will be heralded by the sound of a trumpet, and the dead shall rise never to die again, while the living shall be transformed and given immortality.

We shall triumphantly declare "Oh death where is your sting, oh grave where is your victory?"

1 Thess. 4: 16 tells us that the dead in Christ shall arise first.

The dead in Christ are those who when they were alive accepted Jesus as Lord of their lives and lived for Him.

This prospect of meeting Jesus one day in the air when the trumpet sounds is a great incentive to live righteous lives here and now.

As 1 John 3: 3 tells us, those who have this hope in them purify themselves as He (Christ) is pure.

Every genuine Christian who is looking forward to this exciting gathering in Christ would strive to shun sin and worldliness and live by the priorities of the Kingdom especially in these last days.

Are you seriously anticipating meeting Christ?
Your life will show it here and now!!

Prayer:

My Lord and my God, please help me to amend my life and be ready  for the coming of Jesus Christ, Amen

Memory Verse:   1 Cor. 15: 58

"Therefore my beloved brethren be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord"
