As I mentioned I would do, in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I went to Bible study. And, I worshipped with my church family, after.
I must admit, it is absolutely wonderful to worship God, in spirit and in truth. And, through music!
Previously, I mentioned at our Christian Singles' Café (CSC) friend, Brian... died. I realized that I hadn't mentioned much about what happened.
As I mentioned before, he called me on Friday, November 28th, to let me know he couldn't help me lift some things, as I had asked him several days earlier to do on Saturday, November 29th. At this time, he told me he wasn't feeling well.
Like I said previously, I let him know that it was okay. And, I let him know I would pray for him, since he wasn't feeling well.
The next day, Saturday, November 29th, I did what I had to do, just a half-block from where Brian lived. In fact, as I was doing what I needed to do, I looked up, saw the building where he lived, and wondered if he was okay. I even wondered if he was alive, or dead.
Being busy, I wasn't able to call him, at that time.
Even if I had been able to phone him, he would probably not have answered the phone. You see, it was later determined that he died, either that Friday evening, or on that Saturday.
When I attended his funeral on Monday, November 8th, I spoke with his brother D. And, his daughter H.
I was told that even though the card printed for him stated he died December 1st, that wasn't the case. Apparently, he was found... that day. So, that was the date quoted on the card.
After some discussion about our telephone call, Brian's family members decided I may have been the last person to speak with him.
It truly made me feel badly. Especially, since I was the last person to have spoken with my brother, Glenn... before he died.
Much like my brother, Brian didn't always go to church to worship. Still, he always spoke with me about trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
This happened, even during our last telephone conversation. Meaning, my last conversation with both my brother Glenn, and the same with Brian.
Thinking about how even though they didn't always get to worship, due to physical and other circumstances, made me think about how they still loved Jesus.
How happy I am they did, because it is only those who trust in/believe upon Jesus, who go to heaven, after they die here on this earth. They go to heaven, because they are His saints.
Just as we read, in Psalm 116:15, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints."
Some people don't believe that we born-again Christians, are saints. But, we are. Just as the Bible teaches.
And, just as we read in today's verse, we are precious in the sight of the Lord. Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Are you precious in the sight of the Lord? Are you trusting in/believing upon Jesus Christ?
If not, you'll spend eternity in Hell, separated from God. And, you'll have no chance of escape. You'll be there, forever.
Hopefully, you are. For if so, I'll see you in heaven, one day.
Until next time...
