How Faith faces Death
Reflecting on the current situation and status of our country we must seek an answer why faith is facing death within our society and family circles. Although it is true that sometimes death brings us the realities and confronts us with issues that need resolution we need not allow death of our faith to occur to make us realize what we have lost.
Faith is needed in all circumstance of life but the truth is faith is needed even more so when we face a death of a persons, a principle or a country for only faith can revive the momentum to bring back the relations between truth and lies as well as strength, hope, joy and comfort that we have lost has now been regained or restored. Without faith we will surely fail.
We have to face the death of our morality, our principles and our country before it’s too late. We had to look death straight in its eyes and look beyond the death itself and focus on the hope that lies there for it is hope that gives us faith. We should make no promises that we can’t keep but we must promise to act upon what is best for our lives, our morality and our country.
The death of a country or morality is a grave matter. No pun intended but because the penalty of death is infinitely the destruction and loss of our moral compass, our freedoms and our ability to govern ourselves we have no choice but to fight death because of its irreversible nature and a final step into eternity.
The unfortunate consequences for sin is agony. The ultimate result for surrendering or quitting the fight is domination and dominance over everything we have lived for as all will be taken to the grave. There will be no light for good judgment, no fairness or justice to see and there will only be what death can enable for we shall bear the fruits of death rather than the fruits of life. This is how serious it is to have faith and fight the face of death.
We know just as God had given his children life, God had also taken it away. Let faith win this struggle between life and death and show the world it is not the time to diss or dribble the time away and do nothing. The only way we can defeat death is to worship God again with love, hope and glory.
For everything under the stars and heaven there is a reason. Time will sometimes reveal those reasons, but it is often only in eternity that they will be known. Faith finds comfort in the power, in the goodness, and in the purposes of God, even though we do not understand them at the moment. There are no alternatives to facing death if one wants to live.
Do not fear death. Do not remain quiet and surrender to death. Do not fail to speak your words of wisdom against death and do not ignore the words that are spoken about the coming of death. Most of all, do not live your life in the bondage of this fear called death.
