In Life And In Death We Belong To God

I have leaned heavily on those nine words this week.

On Sunday I employed them to answer an 8th grader’s question about heaven.

“In life and in death we belong to God.”

This afternoon I intoned them at a funeral for a person who died with no living relatives, a person I never met and whose obituary was a single sentence. There were four people present: me, the Funeral Director, the Hearse driver, and a representative from the bank that handled the deceased’s affairs.

“In life and in death we belong to God.”

And tonight I cant them to myself at the news that a colleague and friend only a decade my senior has died.

“In life and in death we belong to God.”

For your faith, your work, your life, your death: commit those nine words to memory.

RIP Jeff Krehbiel
