Minister Speaks: God’s precious promise
Five funerals in two weeks tends to make me contemplative. Many of us have lost loved ones over the years.
I am now 57. I have long lost my grandparents, my father, my brother, my sister, my nephew and more, and this past week my only son would have turned 27 years old. My heart and soul find its only rest in God’s precious promises for those who trust in Him.
Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled… believe in me… I have a place prepared for you… I am the way, the truth and the life.”
Paul told the people in Thessalonica, “I do not want you to be ignorant about those who have died or to grieve like the rest of mankind who have no hope, for we believe that Jesus died and rose again and so through Jesus, God will bring with Him those who have died in Him…… and so shall we be together with them to meet the Lord…”
This is the truth, the hope that we have in Jesus, and it is His Word that I trust in. There are so many things that have the potential to divide us, but no better precious truth than this hope to bind us together.
