Christians – By the Book

Life …This one’s not the end.

by on Mar.08, 2012, under Amazing Life, True Christianity

An old friend, Dennis Webber, a preacher of the gospel for many years died last year. It was sudden and when I found out he was in the hospital and it did not look good, from a worldly point of view.  From a spiritual view however, Paul calls it “gain” to go and be with the Lord.

Philippians 1:21-23: For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22: But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. 23: For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

To his wife, children, grand-children and friends it is loss. But to Dennis, it just might be gain. No more pain, suffering, fighting with this world. Just the joy of hearing our Lord say, “Well done Dennis, well done.”
