FAR bETTER PLACE

“I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live.” – John 11:25

My mother died of cancer. I didn’t leap for joy when the doctor told us about her condition. But another part of me was happy that if she didn’t get healed, she would still be in a far better place than earth could ever be.
So when she died a few months after her surgery, I prayed hard that the Lord would make her worthy to enter that blessed place. Recently, she appeared in a dream. She was smiling. So now even as I continue to pray for her, I also more often ask for her intercession.

I savor my hope-filled view of death because I got delivered from the fear of dying after I came to know Jesus in a more personal way. Now I look forward to that time without worry. I will probably still commit sin, and I don’t know how long the journey will take, or how difficult it will be. But as surely as Jesus said it, then He will raise me to everlasting life.

We don’t have to be saints to believe there is heaven. We just need to believe in the One who will let us enter it — Jesus. Joy Sosoban

REFLECTION:
Heaven… to Him of adequate desire No further ‘tis, than Here. (Emily Dickinson)

In light or darkness, Lord, let me believe steadfastly in heaven.
