PostSubject: HELD IN GOD'S HAND   Wed Sep 18, 2013 12:41 pm

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. JOHN 10:28

When I recently lost my father to congestive heart failure, my brother to lung cancer and then my mother to pancreatic cancer, each time...I rested on Jesus' words in John 10:28, that not even death would snatch us from God's hand. All thanks to God our Father, each of my beloved family members had received Christ as their Savior. They realized they had sin in their lives and then put their trust in Christ to save them. If we too are in God's hand this way, then death must be like God closing His hand on our earthly life, and opening it to our new life in righteousness. God holds us in His hands the way we might cradle a small animal in ours, or cradle a child in our arms.

To be here on earth as a follower of Christ is good, but to live sinlessly before God's face in eternity is better. We can take comfort when thinking of believers who have died. Though we miss them and grieve deeply, we know God is protecting and loving them far better than we ever could. Jesus' promise to carry us through should give us comfort individually, too, as we think about our own death, whether imminent or years away. Jesus has taken away our reasons to fear death. In what better place could we be, if we are carried in the hands that made the universe?

INSIGHT: DEATH FOR BELIEVERS, THOUGH TEMPORARILY GRIEVOUS, IS ONLY A PASSAGE INTO ETERNITY WITH THE HOLY ONE WHO MADE US.

Prayer: Dear Lord, I too want to be held in Your hand. Give me a humble heart so that I can always realize my need for the Savior, Your Son Jesus. In His Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
