Reveille

"O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?"1

Prior to his death, Winston Churchill planned his funeral and requested that at his funeral a bugler, positioned high in the dome of Saint Paul's Cathedral, play "Taps," the signal that the day is over. However, as soon as "Taps" was finished, a second bugler positioned on the opposite side of the dome was to play "Reveille," signaling that a new day is beginning and that "It's time to get up! It's time to get up in the morning!"

Churchill had it right. Death is not the end of life. It's just the end of life on earth, for the human spirit is immortal. For the non-Christian death is eternal disconnection or separation from God, the author of all life and love. For the Christian, death is but the end of their "day" on earth and the beginning of a new day—the entrance into eternal life in heaven to be "forever with the Lord."

What a wonderful hope to have. If you are not absolutely certain that you have this hope of life beyond the grave, I encourage you to read the article, "How to Be Sure You're a Real Christian" at: http://tinyurl.com/real-christian. Herein you will find how you, too, can have hope and the promise of life beyond death.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, help me to prepare today for eternity's tomorrow, and help me always to remember that: 'Only one life, 'twill soon be past; only what's done for Christ will last.' Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

1. 1 Corinthians 15:55.
