He Is Risen
I just returned from visiting my little brother in the hospital. It is so very hard to walk past the doors of those who are suffering. And I am not even among their numbers, unless you count the stress of statistics and calculus tests as suffering. And we read just today that a favorite cartoonist has gone to his reward.
Nothing in mortal life is certain. For today, we have only the promise of salvation for eternity.
But we also have the promise that He will return and put suffering itself to death. (Revelation 20:14)
