- Jeremiah 12:5
 
Some people do not want to be reminded of the crossing of the river we call Death. They regard it as morbid to do so.

"How wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?"
- Jeremiah 12:5
 
Some people do not want to be reminded of the crossing of the river we call Death. They regard it as morbid to do so. Since death is a part of human experience, it is prudent to face it frankly and honestly even from the temporal point of view. But when we consider the eternity on the other side of the river, it is imperative to prepare for the crossing.
 
There are three attitudes with which men face the crossing. The one is fear and despair which is tragic. The second is a hopeless resignation to man's fate, "what must be, must be" attitude; there is no comfort in that. The third is the Christian way: faith in Christ, who has redeemed us and in whose righteousness a believer is blameless in the presence of God.
 
Christian friends,The crossing itself we find a special promise of the LORD: "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee."   And how great that on the other side of the river the LORD will be waiting to greet His own with a joyous "Come, ye blessed of My Father."
 
      To Him I trust my soul, my dust,
      When flesh and spirit sever;
      The Christ we sing has plucked the sting
      Away from death forever.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Because Jesus has risen from the dead, He has the last word in life and in death.
