DEATH....a Reward....

It seems as if when one person dies....more follow.  We have not had a funeral in our church in a while.  

A couple of weeks ago, one of our members lost his mom.  He was an only child.  The next week, we lost our oldest living church member....Mrs. Margaret Baker who was 91 years old and also another church member lost her granddaddy, who was the one that raised her.  This week another church member passed away and then, yesterday I posted about the pastor's wife that passed away from a stroke..............

Death is soooo hard on the ones left behind.  

And in the mist of our grief, we fail to stop and realize that if that person was a Christian..........they were just given their ultimate reward.  They are NOW walking the streets of Gold with, none other, but God himself.  How awesome is that?

We, being human, we want to keep everyone here forever.  I have a friend that keeps saying she does not want to die and does not want any of her family members to die.  She just wants the Lord to Come Back........and take them all at the same time.

If all of our family members are Christians....that would be WONDERFUL....

Unfortunately, we all have family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers or at least know  people who are NOT Christians.  They are not ready.  It is our jobs to take every opportunity we have to set an example and witness to them so that they will be prepared.
