Yesterday morning I attended a funeral. Sad, but also a joyful
celebration of a man who lived each moment for his faith and his
family. A man now claiming eternal life.
This morning, Cutie cat scared me when she jumped from the floor to
the sink in the bathroom, scrambling not to fall. She hasn't been able
to jump up there in the last couple of years. Yet, she always liked
drinking directly from the faucet. She enjoyed the fresh water. When
she finished, I lifted her down. She's so skinny and fragile. I'm sure
her fast-running thyroid is telling her brain she's a youngster again.
She's not, but considering I thought she was about to die in June,
she's doing very well.
The funeral and Cutie's jump, made me think about eternity. Maybe it
will be like Cutie a bit—only for real. Our bodies will no longer be
limited by age and pain and aches. We'll be renewed to our youth.
We'll be able to jump and run and dance. But eternity begins here,
with the joy of allowing Jesus into our lives and serving Him.
Eternity isn't about death. It's about life—forever.
But now, being made free from sin, and having become servants of God,
you have your fruit of sanctification, and the result of eternal life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal
life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:22-23 WEB
