This past month a dear friend of mine died unexpectedly. He was a Christian, praise God.
His pastor gave the sermon from Lighthouse Baptist Church in Eau Claire, WI, where the memorial service was held.
His sermon will leave a mark on you, reflecting soberly on your own death and status before God.
If you have not been to a funeral recently, it may be good to watch this sermon to remind you of your own personal eschatology.
This sermon will exhort you that your worldly attachments should not be idols. Rather, life is short, live for what lasts. Make your life count for something for eternity.
To go directly to this brief sermon, go to the timestamp 46:30:
“It is better to go to a funeral than a feast. For death is the destiny of every person, and the living should take this to heart. Sorrow is better than laughter, because sober reflection is good for the heart. The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of merrymaking.” (Eccl 7:2–4)
