2 Corinthians 5:6 – Devotional
2 Corinthians 5:6
“So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.”
There have been numerous instances in my life when it seemed I was facing disaster and possible death. Once an approaching car careened across the road into my lane and I narrowly was able to swerve onto the shoulder of the roadway and thus avoid a catastrophic collision.
Another incident occurred in 1953. I had completed basic training in California and along with 40 or 50 other servicemen was being transported to Texas. We were being transported on an old World War II military transport plane—an old one! It was old back during WW2 and even more so when we flew in it!
One of the flight crew notified us that we would be making a stop in New Mexico. As we landed, one of the two propellers stopped. We were stranded there for several hours while the necessary repairs were made. It was the hand of God that allowed us to be able to land before the trouble hit. Close call!
I have experienced enough close calls to reveal that each of us is only one heartbeat away from eternity! The same is true of those around us. We never know when we will miss the opportunity to share the gospel before it is too late! It is time to leave our comfort zone and place our confidence in the Lord!
Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
