From John Piper’s book, Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die

One day all disease will be banished from God’s redeemed creation.  There will be a new earth.  We will have new bodies.  Death will be swallowed up by everlasting life (1 Corinthians 15:54; 2 Corinthians 5:4).  “The wolf and the lamb shall graze together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox” (Isaiah 65:25).  And all who love Christ will sing songs of thanks to the Lamb who was slain to redeem us from sin and death and disease (p. 55).

In my last post, I wrote about Dave Jones, who went to be with the Lord today.  Right now, he is experiencing complete healing from all the painful effects of sin.  Truly, to die is gain.

  1. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble, Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea..
    – Psalms 46:1-2

  2. Everytime someone close to me dies, I think about thier soul in eternity. I can’t even imagine opening my eyes in Heaven! And that new body, I need that now!LOL
