When the End Turns Out to Be a Beginning

“Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.”  –  Fred Rogers

Mr. Rogers’ words remind me of what Jesus Christ has done to death.  That is, Jesus has taken what was an end (death), and turned it into the beginning of something else (never-ending life in heaven with Him).

Jesus has turned the curse into a blessing (Nehemiah 13:2).  He has given us a future and a hope where we had none (Jeremiah 29:11).  He has removed the sting from death (1 Corinthians 15:55).

When you think you’re at the end of life, you are only as the child in the womb is at the end of the time of the mother’s pregnancy.  Death is not a dead-end – it’s a doorway.  Let us prepare!
