A GOOD MAN IS GONE; GLORY TO GOD! Are people passing away more rapidly today than usual? I have heard many say so. Somehow, you don't quite feel it till it hits close. Now, it's a tough thing to accept the fact that you would not see him again on this side of eternity, right? I know. Another stream of tears, another long line of long faces, seemingly tired of weeping. ...but why do you weep for someone who is rejoicing? Why weep for the dead in Christ? Even the bible says it is precious to the Lord when a saint departs here and returns home. (Psalm 116:15). Are ye not yet carnal when that which pleases the Lord causes you to grieve? Both the departed and the One receiving him yonder are happy, very happy. Why then are you sad and broken? Poor flesh. Why does the bible devote so much attention to describe the beauty of heaven in such great detail and lofty words? Since when did the thought of gold, diamond and other precious stones and such impeccable beauty associated with heaven begin to elicit sorrow and tears? Should we not rather rejoice with them and for them who have gone ahead of us? Why do you not leap for joy in anticipation of heaven? Do you truly believe the bible? If heaven is so beautiful and God's presence so fulfilling, why do we hesitate to go? Even little rascals whose end is certain damnation are tying bombs around their waists and exploding like popcorn all over the place in the name of religion... without a care for this present life. Why then do you (who are sure of a beautiful future) dread physical death? Fear of the unknown, some say; but there is neither fear nor ignorance of the hereafter to those who have known Him. Recall your first boarding house experience. You cried as your parents handed you over to those school staff and child minders you had never met... total strangers. The thought of not seeing Mama for a few months was unbearable. It didn't matter that the school staff were going to shower you with love and show you a whole new (perhaps, even exciting) world. You cried like tomorrow would never come. Children! Crying and whining at the death of a Christian makes you just like that little adolescent making a boarding school debut, crying for Mama. Hey! The loved one and beautiful soul you are weeping over may be just a few days, months or years gone... before you meet them again. How much longer before Jesus comes for you? How much longer before you pass on to reunite with them? Being here is only for a purpose, my friend. Focus on that purpose, not on the length of time you are here. It is empty and vain-glorious to focus on the latter, like majoring on the minor. "Long life" is a blessing that expires here on earth. There is something better than long life; it's called Eternal life. At the end of it all, performances would be judged and awards given and received ON MERIT. No awards and accolades would be given for long life! Wonderful, if you ask me. A good man has gone to be with the Lord. Let the church say, "Glory to God"! By the way, making the passage and rites of passage a major preoccupation is not the business of the living. The living concern themselves with the work, the assignment, the purpose of living. "Let the dead bury their dead" (Not my words, lest you pick up stones against me). Jesus said so. A good man has gone. Let the living say... GLORY TO GOD! #Kingschatrecommends
