{Did You Know Death is Worthy of Celebrating?}

I do not normally celebrate a death. How about you? But according to the Bible there is great reason to celebrate our death. Please join Conforming To The truth as we study inductively through Romans. Print your Free Bible study today.As I was reading through Romans 6:1-11  in preparation for this post, I noticed the words die, death, died and dead appeared  in 9 of the eleven verses. I could not help myself, I had to count them! I found these words, collectively, recorded {for us} 18 times! We know that when a writer repeats a word  in Scripture he is trying to teach us something.  I do believe that God through the Spirit is flashing a bright light right before our eyes trying to get our attention. It has my attention, what about you?

Death is not normally, a pleasant thing. People we know and do not know die every single day. With a death, there normally occurs with it, sadness, mourning, and grieving. These emotions are what make us human, and they are real. If someone does not show any or, at least, some of these emotions when a death occurs we think something is wrong with them.

 

Today as we look at this passage that talks much about death:

  • There will be no grieving.
  • There will be no mourning.
  • There will be no sorrow.

And there is nothing wrong with us!

Today is a joyous day!

In this passage of Scripture, death is a good thing! Something for the believer to joy in!

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD God, I will give thanks to you forever. Psalm 30:11-12

For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection. Romans 6:5

Jesus teaches in John 12:24, “that unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. ”

In order for anyone to commune with God, the flesh must die, that carnal part of us that was our natural state because of our own sin. According to Romans 6:1-11 if we have become united with Christ in His death we are now alive!

Because of Christ, our body of sin is done away with. It is dead. Christ took our death and buried it with His death. Christ rose from the dead and with His resurrection we the believer are resurrected unto a new life.  All things are new the old is gone, dead and buried in the grave no longer to be resurrected unto life! That means that the work of Christ on our behalf is accomplished, finished. We shall never die again but live forever.

Starting this very moment believer, let’s live in victory! Know that you are dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Celebrate your death, celebrate the death that has occurred in your friends and family through Jesus Christ.

I cannot end this post without calling all of us to pray and ask God to slay and kill those who we know that are not alive in Christ Jesus. I know many people and I know you do too that do not know Christ. Today is the day of salvation.

    This is such a hard concept to accept in ourselves. I’m lost a lot of wonderful friends this last year but in Christ I know I will see them again. That is the comfort that helps mw say goodby. Thanks for sharing this valuable subject.

    Reblogged this on and commented:
    •There will be no grieving.
    •There will be no mourning.

    There will always be Sorrow, Mourning and Grieving But there is JOY that follows Death. There needs to be Celebration of the person’s life here on earth. I Celebrate Bobby’s Life and TRY NOT TO DWELL ON HIS DEATH. Perfect timing. I commented on this in another post today.

    Fantastic post, Lisa. We don’t talk much about dying with Christ. We read it in Scripture and then move on, but it is through this death that we have freedom and life. Oh, His amazing grace and love overwhelm me.
