Questions about death are often on our mind. Death is something that each person will face one day, and the death of loved ones and friends is something that we will deal with throughout our life. The subject caused many questions among the church in the first century and God, through the inspiration of the Spirit, answered those questions in His word.
The idea of forgiveness can be very perplexing to us at times. The very fact that regardless of what a person has done he can be forgiven when he seeks God, is taught throughout the Bible. The problem is that some people fail to believe this truth. There are some individuals who find it hard to believe that they can be forgiven because they can't forgive themselves. They see their sins as being too numerous and too great for God to forgive. Well, there is a man whom we are going to read about in the Bible who had committed great sins, yet he found forgiveness from God when he sought it.
No matter how many times we read passages in the Bible that speak of people becoming unfaithful to God, the tragic reality never really sinks in until we see it happen to someone close to us. The sad reality is that good men can turn wicked. Any man or woman who at one time was a great example of faithfulness for others can lose his or her way and become an example of what we shouldn't be. As we examine this topic, however, I believe that there are some warning signs that can be found in the lives of the men and women we read about in the Bible.
Due to man's tendency to allow important facts and events slip from his mind, God has given us His word whereby we can have a true account of certain events. The lives of those whom we read about within the word of God serve a very important purpose. They serve as an example for us today. An example by which we can learn and benefit from so that we may serve God more effectively.
