Have You Heard?

Pastor

        How interested are you in eternal life? Are you more interested in this life on earth that is certainly temporary? A life that has been limited by our own mortality is not where a person should focus their undivided attention. Indeed we have a life that is to be lived on this planet, but shouldn’t our lives be lived with the hope of the everlasting?  

       There is nothing like being in the delivery room when your child is born. Moms, just want you to know that you have my undying respect—amazing! When Justin, Meaghan and Caitlin were born we gave each of our children to God. So much so, we told God that if our children would grow to reject Him then we wanted God to take each of them to haven with Him. God put us to the test with our first, Justin.  

       The pediatrician diagnosed him with spinal meningitis telling us that ten days earlier a child under his care had died from it. That night with Justin in the hospital, I went home to speak with Almighty God. Having settled the question whether or not I meant for God to take Justin if he were to reject God—my Heavenly Father took me to this Scripture which became a promise for Justin: “For the Lord says, ‘Because he loves me, I will rescue him; I will make him great because he trusts in my name. When he calls on me I will answer; I will be with him in trouble, and rescue him and honor him. I will satisfy him with a full life and give him my salvation.’” Ps. 91:14-16           

       Each of our children live under that promise—all know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Just think, Sally and I will spend eternity with them! How interested are you in the eternal?
