Our Daily Bread
Charles Haddon Spurgeon said, "Death in its substance has been removed, and only the shadow of it remains. Nobody is afraid of a shadow, for a shadow cannot block a man's pathway for even a moment. The shadow of a dog can't bite; the shadow of a sword can't kill."
Christ Himself took the full force of death's destroying power by dying and paying for our sin, then rising from the grave. Trusting Jesus may not remove death's shadow, but remember, shadows can't hurt us - D.J.D.
