To Live, To Die

"For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain." (Philippians 1:21)

To live
to remain
on earth
to do the Lord's bidding

Always wonder why
when we think
usefulness is gone
we remain
and when
we are in the midst
of going to and fro
or just barely
beyond the opening gate,
our life is over.

Our physical life is over. But if we are with Christ, if we have professed Him as our personal Lord and Savior, our spiritual life continues and grows and lives forever and ever in the heavenly realms. Without Jesus - if God had not come to earth at all, where would we be? There would be nothing to hope for. Our eternal life begins the moment we realize and accept Jesus' birth, death and resurrection is for us, our very souls. This is our rebirth. With Him, our tomorrows have promise and hope. And when we reminisce of days past and those soon to come, the remorse and sadness that envelopes us will give way to joy. Joy in the Lord. And what a day of rejoicing that will be.
