You shall come to your grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn comes in in his season.
I. A CONSIDERATION OF THE CHANGE TO TAKE PLACE IN THE DISSOLUTION OF THE BODY. Through man's transgression death entered the world — "so death passed upon all men." Our first parent came from the hands of God, created after His likeness, impressed with immortality.
II. A CONSIDERATION OF THE PERIOD OF DEATH'S ARRIVAL. How few die in old age! It is "full age" with us when we are prepared to depart — when the work is done we have to do.
III. THE MANNER OF DEATH'S ARRIVAL. The last enemy wears a thousand forms.
IV. SOME REFLECTIONS. Christians do not repine at God's decree. The Christian is taught to believe that whilst the spirit is in God's keeping, the body also is not undeserving His cognisance.
(George Anthony Moore.)
