58 In Christ We Can Live for Ever – Memento Mori

April 22, 2022

In today’s episode I talk about the finitude of our temporal life, and the eternity of life in Heaven. “Memento mori” is a phrase that has become a bit of a fad in certain environments today, but it has been around in Christian culture for many centuries. While the secular world sees death in a negative and sometimes pessimistic way, the death and resurrection of Christ has given it a whole new and positive meaning. At the end, I share a simple experience that happened some weeks ago. “In all you do, remember the end of your life, and then you will never sin.” (Sirach 7:36)

- Scriptural quotes: Philippians 1:23; Wisdom 1:13; Romans 5:12; Romans 6:23;
