Lord Of The Dead And Living

Whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. Romans 14:8-9
 
In this verse from Paul’s letter to the believers at Rome, he refers to those who know, and have known, Christ as Lord and Savior. Jesus is the Lord of the millions of Christians who have lived in the past and who have now passed on to their reward. He is also the Lord of all believers still living who look forward to eternal life with Him in heaven after their days on earth are over.
 
Whether we are alive or dead, there is no better place to be than in the hands of our loving Lord.
