A tearless after-life

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”  Revelation 7:17.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Ezekiel 17-19, and Revelation 7.

There is so much sadness.

We are all terminal and we live in a fallen world.  Plenty of things resulting from those conditions to lead to sadness.

When I am finally with God, ALL of my sadness will be gone.

I must be rejoicing in Him at the thought of the future He has planned for me.

The godless think that their future ends at death.  Little do they know that they will indeed have a future beyond death, eternally separated from God.  The conditions for those separated will be tearful as they get what they wanted and then realize what a mistake that choice was.

I must remember how awesome God’s love is.  He loved me when I was unlovable.  He provided a way for me to get rid of my sin problem and become acceptable to Him.  How thankful I must be!

“Lord, I thank You for making me acceptable to You.  What a glorious future You have planned.  Forgive my waywardness.  Forgive me for forgetting all that You have done for me and all that You have planned for me in the days/years ahead.  What a future I have in You.”

No tears in the after-life of believers.

St. Lucia
