Anne Donahue wrote recently in the Globe and Mail, about her fascination with November, just past. She said, “It’s a nothing month between the vibrancy of October and the festivities of December. It’s cold, and damp.” She added, “Life is not all celebration. In order to appreciate the full scope of living, we must acknowledge endings, and death.” She is correct. The Bible reminds us that “It is appointed unto man to die, and after this the judgment.” This can be a scary for some, but when we realize the scope of God’s love and provision for us and accept His gift of eternal life, the fear goes away, and life becomes full and vibrant. It is true that “the wages of sin is death.” But it is also true that “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” He promised, “ the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.”
