Where Are They Now

From the Heart

A young man walking through a cemetery came across this epitaph
written on a tombstone:

“Pause, stranger, when you pass me by-

As you are now, so once was I.

As I am now, so you will be-

Prepare yourself to follow me.”

His reply: “To follow you, I’m not content-

Until I know which way you went!”

 

If you want to follow someone,
follow Christ, my friend.
He will lead you into paths of righteousness,
and His mercy has no end.

 

What we think about heaven
determines how we live today.
We can easily be led away from God’s purpose
if we do not steadfastly pursue His way.

 

When things go wrong, as they often do–
How do you respond-
Do you pray it through?

 

It may depend on your expectancy.
Did you implore the Lord your need to see?

 

Patience, dear friend,
the Lord knows our needs before we even ask Him.
He will supply those needs no matter how stark or grim.

 

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared
to all men, teaching us that denying ungodliness
and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously,
and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed
hope and glorious appearing of our great God and
Saviour Jesus Christ.”
Titus 2:11-13
