When I come to die

Re: Verse reading–Deuteronomy 34 (day one)
“When I come to die, yes, when I come to die, give me Jesus”–Jeremy Camp.  For 12 weeks we have surveyed the stages of life.  (Thank you, Baptistway –excellent summer study)  We have looked at youth, marriage, the birth of children, family tensions and retirement.  This week we come to the end of life–the experience of death.  What will death be like for the believer?  The biblical report is mixed.  Some struggle–Moses still wanted to live, prayed for the privilege to go into the land promised. ( See Deuteronomy 3)  Significant satisfaction–Moses’ last act was to teach Israel a new song of praise. (see Deuteronomy 32)  Praise indicates the gratitude of his heart as he prepared to meet the Lord.  The lesson for us?  An end to denial!  We will die.  Unless the Lord comes beforehand, we will all experience what Moses did.  Are we ready?  What can we do, pray or resolve so that we can be?  (Personal note–I will be so glad to be back in the FBC pulpit this coming Sunday.  Looking forward to seeing you there!)
