A Life Without Disease

[195 words]

At the time of this writing, I just got the news that another relative of mine has left this life due to Covid-19. Wouldn’t it be great to wake up tomorrow and read this headline? “Covid-19 Now Cured!”

But despite the great gains medical science has made, disease and death is still a reality. Yes, we can put it off for a while. We can get cured of some diseases that were considered killers less than a century ago. But the plain fact is, God told us: “It is appointed unto man to die once and after that he must face the judgment seat of God” (Hebrews 9:27). And that hasn’t changed.

Did you know that faithful Christians have God’s promise of eternal life? Here is that promise, “Blessed is a person who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him” (James 1:12).

When you become a faithful Christian, God’s guarantee to you is life everlasting. It is a life without disease. It is life in a place of eternal joy and celebration.
