THE SAINT'S DAY OF DEATH
The day of Death for a child of God is better than the day he was born physically, into this world. We were born, as children of wrath, without God and without hope in this world. We were born with ADAM'S OLD SINFUL NATURE, thus were children of wrath. We sinned and became the children of disobedience. We were born totally depraved, dead in trespasses and sins. We were on our way to The Lake of Fire. But HALLELUJAH, PRAISE THE LORD, one day the Holy Spirit was sent to Quicken us, and to give us the Graces of repentance and faith. UNDER HOLY SPIRIT CONVICTION WE SAW WHAT WE WERE, THE JUDGMENT WE WERE UNDER, AND THAT Christ was our only hope. We bowed to His Lordship, and He graciously saved us. HE DIDN'T HAVE TO SAVE US, BUT DID BECAUSE THE FATHER CHOSE US TO SALVATION, IN ETERNITY PAST, AND GAVE US TO HIS SON, AS A GIFT. SO WHEN, WE LEAVE THIS WORLD, IT WILL BE BETTER FOR US, THAN THE DAY WE WERE BORN PHYSICALLY INTO THIS WORLD.
