God Is No Respecter of Persons!

When Someone Dies…
“At a moment like this, silence seems to be the only expression that fits. What can we, as mere men, say to a grieving and shattered heart? We speak today because we have a living hope. Death is no respecter of persons. Death is no respecter of youth. Death is a painful intruder and a pernicious reminder of our human condition. But I stand before you today to declare that we have a living hope and that causes us to rejoice greatly. You see, our hope today is found in the fact that Jesus is no longer entombed. He lives. And because He lives, [the person that dies in Jesus] lives. Because He (Jesus) lives, the grieving broken heart has hope, and reason to rejoice.”

Death Is Sudden

Death is appointed to us, even the day, the place and the manner in which we are to die. Therefore it is inevitable. And it is sudden, too. David wrote: “There is but a step between me and death” (I Sam. 20:3). Again, “Our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is no abiding” (I Chron. 29:15). And again, “Thou hast made my days as an handbreadth” (Ps. 39:5).
In Job we read: “Man that is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble” (Job 14:1). Again we read in Job: “…In a moment they go down to the grave.” And once again the book of Job tells us: “My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle” (Job 21:13; 7:6).
James wrote: “For what is your life: it is even a vapour that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away (Jas. 4:14).
The Greeks have a proverb that life is a “bubble.”
Homer called life a “leaf” – the weakest piece of an unsteady short-lived plant.
Pindar called life “the dream of a shadow.”
And Shakespeare cried, “Out, out brief candle!”

So lets live for Jesus, lets live in Him, with Him, for Him, to Him, building a relationship with Him that will outlive life itself in this world and set us up for life everlasting in the world to come. So in conclusion, its not so important how you die but more important to die in Jesus!!
