In some instances, we look forward to the end.
The end of the test.
The end of the workday.
The end of the week.
In other cases, we dread the end.
The end of a delicious dinner.
The end of the weekend.
The end of vacation
There is one “The End” that we don’t even want to think about. In fact, more and more people are saying they choose to ignore it, that they are just too engaged to give it any thought. “The End” they are avoiding is, of course, death.
It is a strange relationship we have with death. It is inevitable. It is, along with birth, the one major event in which we all participate. One would think we would talk about it more since it should bond us all together. But we avoid this subject, more than the Covid.
Still, questions occasionally float through our minds about “The End”. Is there a heaven? Is there a hell? Is there anything? Will I be aware of anything? How long will it last?
The last question might be the most unnerving – “How long will it last?” One thing a person can say for sure is, “We’re going to be dead a whole lot longer than we live on this earth.”
Another question one might ask is, “How can a human being live well without having any information about ‘The End’?” If we don’t know what happens after our earthly life, how can we be sure of what is important in the here and now? Is each one of us left to make our educated guess about what life now is all about?
“The End” is worth thinking and talking about. This weekend we’re going to study one of the most powerful and inspiring chapters in the Bible – 1 Corinthians 15. It is appropriately called “The Resurrection Chapter”. The message is very simple, through Jesus Christ, “The End” becomes “The Beginning”!
