Present with God
“and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.” Ecclesiastes 12:7 (ESV)
It is comforting to know that to be absent from our body is to be present with our Lord in spirit. The resurrection will bring forth our glorified bodies when our spirit once again reinvigorates us, but until that experience is realized to where the details can be explained, let’s put our faith in the blessed hope of our Lord’s return. That will be a glorious day of reuniting with our loved ones in eternity where we will be present with God together, forever and ever.
Let’s pray today that our loved ones may yield to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
