Davidisms: My Last Breath Here Will Be My First Breath There

“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you” (Ephesians 5:14).

My last breath here will be my first breath there.

Think about this beautiful reality. If you believe in Jesus, death will be like going to sleep, awakening, and arising to new life. Seeing the face of Jesus for the first time. And then all of our loved ones in heaven. And the multitude of saints who have gone before us. Plus, the angels!

It’s breathtakingly unimaginable.

The statistics are in: one out of one of us dies. But death should not be feared by Christians! It has been overcome by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Therefore, believe in Jesus. Don’t allow death to be feared, nor your heart be troubled (John 14:1). You’ll awaken in heaven. Soon, you will see Jesus face-to-face (1 Corinthians 13:12).

And your last breath here will be your first breath in heaven, where you will breathe God’s perfect, rarified air forever.
