The other day a couple that has been married for over fifty years was standing with their church family. It was the last hymn and they were both praising the Lord. Suddenly, the wife fell to the floor. The husband immediately thought, "Is this the end?" Faced with possible death at any second, this curse stalks all of our lives, but near the end of his letter to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul tells us that even if we do die physically it's not the end. He says, "Listen we will not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. For this decaying, ever weakening body must be clothed with incorruptibility and this mortal body must be clothed with immortality." (1 Cor. 15:51-53.) My friend's wife quickly came to and was able to go home from church. But even if she had died, it's not the end because the resurrected Jesus one day is going to take that body that so easily collapses and falls into death and give us a new immortal body that will stand strong forever. I'm listening for that trumpet call today.
