Meditations From A Funeral

Meditations From The Funeral
Of Helen Lovins -- 9-29-2014
By Pastor Dr. Ronnie W. Wolfe

There is no higher truth, no more enduring peace, no warmer heart, no longer life, no stronger bond, no greater love, and no clearer eyes than Jesus Christ.

So Jesus Christ gives us a higher truth, a more enduring peace, a warmer heart, a longer life, a stronger bond, a greater love, and clearer eyes . . .

Clearer eyes to see:   a love beyond expression, a life beyond comprehension, a bond beyond separation, a heart beyond breaking, a peace beyond understanding, a truth beyond boundaries, and eyes to see . . .

... a city not made with hands, whose builder and maker is God, a mansion beyond this life, a place of no fear, no sorrow, no tears, "an inheritance incorruptible, undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God unto salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time."

Hebrews 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

 So, by faith we can enter into that celestial city that God has made with his own hands, a city beyond our comprehension, which eye has not seen, which ear has not heard, and which it has not entered into the human heart of man but must be revealed by grace through faith in the crucified Lord, Jesus Christ, who became sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him (2 Cor. 5:21).
