If we do not understand death, it can seem very final, and very frightening. However, the finished works of Jesus Christ have re-written the ending of the story. Very seldom do we hear believers talk about victory over death, yet this is what Jesus’ death and resurrection have given us. Most people think they have absolutely no control over when they die, but the Bible reveals otherwise. Not only is it God’s will for us to live long lives, it is a covenant right when we become born again. We take possession of this right by faith. Believing God’s Word in this area positions us for a strong, vigorous life.
