This youngster looks a little afraid, doesn't he? A bath can be a terrifying thing the first time and this appears to be the case here. That's true of most things, isn't it, if its going to affect us physically, fear may be close at hand. If its true at the beginning of life, it follows that its true at the end of it. Then what? We die and nothing. Like Rover, are we dead all over? To some of us this little saying may be true, but truthfully, if we had a choice wouldn't we want something better than a dog's life. Consider the following:
1 Corinthians 15:1-8 (WEB)
1) Now I declare to you, brothers, the Good News which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand,
2) by which also you are saved, if you hold firmly the word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
3) For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4) that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
5) and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
6) Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have also fallen asleep.
7) Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles,
8) and last of all, as to the child born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also.
The man Jesus actually lived; this is proven historically beyond all doubt. His death is well documented and as this passage from the book of 1st Corinthians proves, so is his resurrection. This is really good news to those of us who know we will die someday. Like to avail yourself of life after death? Read Acts chapter two and do what those people did!!! Don't be afraid, there is a happy ending!
