A Reminder of Death
nA reminder we will not live forever, but one day will give up our bodies, return to God, and answer to Him.
nOur ultimate dependence is on Him, whether we acknowledge it our not.
nA warning to unbelievers to repent
nEzekiel 18:23 (NIV) Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?
