I once heard a story of an elderly man that was living out his last days in a nursing home. Each day, as the nurses would tend to his needs, he insisted on having an empty chair sitting next to his bed. The man would look at that empty chair and talk for hours at a time each day. One day one of the nurses asked him why he wanted that empty chair. He told the nurse, "that is where Jesus sits when we talk." Eventually, the old man went on to be with the Lord. When they found him, he had passed away with his head in that "empty" chair. Many of the nurses said he left this walk of life with his head in the lap of Jesus. I think this man had a genuine relationship witht he Lord. This is the relationship we should want with our saviour.
