"In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death." Proverbs 12:28
Jesus is life. Abide in Him and there is no death. His ways are life. Abide in His ways, and abide in life, wherein there is no death.
In reading the news, one can see many whose way ended in death. Proverbs 11:19 says, "As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death."
The word evil can mean bad or wrong. The person who follows that which is "bad" pursues it to his own death; likewise, the person who follows that which is "wrong" follows it to his own death.
There is a "right" way, and there is a "wrong" way. There is a way that is life, and there is a way that is death.
"...in the pathway thereof there is no death." In the pathway of righteousness is no death; but, some might say the righteous is slain by death even when he stays in the path of righteousness: but, not so.
We are more than conquerors. Romans 8:36-39 The word "conquerors" means "to vanquish beyond." We who abide in the way of righteousness, when death presents himself as our enemy, overcome him and stand beyond him in life. We conquer beyond; we conquer whatever it is that presents itself in the path of righteousness - we conquer and go beyond it.
We are more than conquerors through Jesus. We conquer death through the life of Jesus Christ.
