(Thomas Brooks, "The Transcendent Excellency of
a Believer's Portion above All Earthly Portions")
A Christian knows that death shall be the
funeral of all . . .
He knows that death shall be the resurrection of all . . .
He knows that death shall bring him to a more clear,
full, perfect, and constant enjoyment of God! This
makes him sweetly and triumphantly to sing it out,
"O death! where is your sting? O grave! where is
your victory?" 1 Corinthians 15:35-37
