Ecclesiastes 1:2 Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.*
Have you ever been in the situation when a friend dies? Recently a friend of the family died, he died at work. . . And I’m glad that he was a Christian. . . I don’t know what more I should say, or can, but it’s not easy. Even if we didn’t meet or talk that often, it’s still hard. Even as I’m writing this, I’m shaking a little.
Isn’t everything just a vanity? nonsense, maybe even a breath? What do we know about tomorrow? Our great plans we have for Our lives, what can we really say?
James 4:14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
I have to say, I’m actually a little envious. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to leave this hellish earth behind, and to be with God forever and ever?
2 Corinthians 5:6-8 So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
Didn’t Jesus our Lord and Savior, tell His disciples that He is leaving to prepare for us mansions (Perhaps penthouse apartments 🙂 ) in His father’s house?
John 14:2 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.
Just think about that, gives me some joy. Maybe we don’t need to mourn too long. After all, They are already home. It’s us still stuck here on earth.
Let’s make sure we serve God, since that’s all that matters
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man’s all.
For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing,
Whether good or evil
One of my favorite songs. . .
