In the end, life

Morning: Psalm 119:97-120; I Samuel 2:12-26; Acts 2:1-21
Evening: Psalm 81, 82; Luke 20:27-40

What happens when we die?  We’re uncertain enough about it that there’s a whole industry devoted to putting it off as long as possible. They tried to tie Jesus in knots with questions about who would be married to whom in the after-life.  Jesus bid them not to speculate about what he suggested is a totally different reality.  He simply affirmed that God is God of the living not of the dead.  For Jesus, life is our final destiny, not death.  The details are beyond us and need not occupy our energies.
