There's this blue recliner in our living room. My wife's chair. Mom's chair. Grandma's chair. But she won't be there this Christmas. She was suddenly gone one day in May.
But with the hurt, there's something more powerful. The hope. The assurance that we'll be together again.
Because Jesus came to pay for the sin that would keep even the most wonderful among us out of heaven. As the Bible says, "All have sinned and fallen short of God's glorious ideal" (Romans 3:23).
But one day my precious wife recognized she needed Jesus as her Savior from her sin. She pinned all her hopes on Him - as I have. And He said, "Whoever believes in Me has eternal life" (John 3:36). Done. Settled.
This is Jesus, who conquered death. And promised, "Because I live, you will live also" (John 15:19). So I could say at a graveside, "See you later, baby." For sure!
I want you to know you belong to Him. That you're ready to live and ready to die. You can belong to Jesus today. Contact us at ChatAboutJesus.com. And be ready, whenever eternity comes.
