I’ll See You Next Monday

Last evening I spent time with our Pastor and his family after Church.  When his Dad retired to bed for the evening he announced to everyone, “I’ll see you all next Monday.”  It took me a minute or so to get that one.  He meant that he was going to bed and he would see everyone tomorrow.  We all got a good laugh out of it.  I think because I did not get it at first.  It is funny.

I began to think.  There will come a day when we will all depart this earth.  What about after that departure?  Will I see you again?  Will I see my loved ones again?

This is a question only they can answer.  Each one of us has been given a will and the freedom to exercise it.  I can choose to follow Jesus Christ or I have the freedom to not follow Jesus Christ.  Now, I believe with all of my heart if we do not follow Jesus Christ we will be sorry for all eternity.

You see, there is a real place called hell and real people go there.  There is coming a day not far off when we will all stand before God and give account for our lives.  Those who have never trusted Jesus Christ will stand before Him as a Just and Holy Judge.  He will pass judgment and proclaim, “Depart from Me, I never knew you.”  These are the most sad words of all ages.

Do you know Jesus?  Even more important does Jesus know you?  Will we see one another next Monday morning here or in Heaven?

So, how are you doing?
