Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional
WITH THE LORD!
John 14:1-3 – Devotional
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
Yesterday afternoon I received a call from Mary Hunter, the wife of my long-time friend and our webmaster, Larry “Buck” Hunter. It was a call that I had been expecting, but at the same time, dreading.
Mary shared the news that “Buck” had gone to be with the Lord. As I have been in prayer for Mary and the three daughters, I have once again been reminded that for the believer, death is not the end, but the beginning of a paradise with God.
The promise which God gives us is such that the Apostle Paul stated that he would much prefer to be with the Lord, but as long as he was allowed to live he would be the Lord’s faithful servant.
I want that to be my purpose for as long as the Lord allows me to continue my ministry here on earth. I am homesick for heaven, but the Lord still has given me fruitful ministry here on earth. I will be as faithful as I know how, but more and more I long to be with the Lord and those who have gone before me.
Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
