A Reason to Rejoice
It's Monday morning, and I am in the office about to prepare for a funeral this afternoon. I'm often reminded as I do this that Christian funerals are unique. We are unique. We are the only ones who can stand at the grave and be rejoicing. Others have "Celebrations of Life" -- and it's about a life that has ended. A life that was lived. A life that is over. But for those who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ -- we celebrate a life that has only begun! "Oh, death, where is your victory? Oh, death, where is your sting?" "Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
