Daily Readings – Welcome Home!

Day 1856: In less two months Christmas will be over – Wow!!!

Scripture: Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones.  Psalm 116:15

Thoughts/questions: Following ‘The Voice of the Martyrs’ as they report on the persecuted church has its drawbacks – I’m left with a ton of questions re: God’s involvement in their persecution and deaths. This verse helps me unload that ton of questions!

As a Father of children who have left home for trips, camp, college, etc., it was always a joy when they returned home where they ‘belonged.’ We BELONG with our Father in heaven. So in God’s economy, the gate just before our entrance into heaven is death. Without that gate, we can’t get in. All of heaven watches that gate to see who has made it HOME where we were created to belong!

10,000 years in heaven will make our 10 to 80 years on earth pale in comparison and whether we entered the gate at 15 or 85 won’t matter one bit! The martyrs go thru the gate sooner than most of us and to God, that is PRECIOUS in His sight!

Suggested prayer: Lord, may I live each day with eternity in mind . . .
