Sermon Notes

Most of us avoid thinking about death until we are forced to do so.  Someone we love is unexpectedly taken from us in a painful moment of grief, we hear a dreadful diagnosis from our own medical doctor, or we watch our elderly relatives and friends slowly drift from vibrant life to uncharacteristic inactivity.  Death is an odd topic because we all would avoid ever thinking of it if we could, and yet we all must face the reality that death will be part of our own personal experience.  Our contemporary culture offers a particular perspective of death, and the Bible offers another.  Death is never good, it is always bad, but it does not have to be trivialized or feared by those who are in Christ.
