HONOR OF DEATH

I have had the privilege to be with several people and their families when they have breathed their last breath. It is an incredible privilege to be present for those who make the transition into God’s kingdom.

I also count it a privilege and honor to visit with people and their families during these last times. Maybe I’m not there are the passing but when a saint passes during these times, it is truly an honor. Even when they are suffering physically from disease, to be present even for moment when people transcend from one degree of glory to another is something incredibly special. To hear from their own lips that they are completely ready to meet the Lord, fills me with such joy that I can’t describe.

Do we honor those who have gone before us by continuing the legacy faith? Or do we degrade by taking our freedoms for granted or not living up to the responsibility that we have been given?
