Jesus reveals a person who passed into eternity desired loved ones on earth to trust selves to God. I’m sure Norma Jean, whose funeral I officiated yesterday, desires that.
You see, God loves you more than you may know. He creates you not just for work or pleasure, no matter how fruitful the work or how fun the pleasure. He offers a grand design for your life that is much more than can be snuffed out.
Search it out. You will find Jesus is right to say: Jn.14:6 I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. He calls you to transformed life. You will find Jesus says: Jn.15:5 If a man remains in ME and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from ME you can do nothing. Think of it! You can enjoy a life in Jesus that yields His amazing benefits for all.
Jesus offers special helps. Let the arms of His church’s care enwrap you. Let prayer, handshakes and encouraging words bring you His strength. Accept His many promises. To be in Jesus is to have hope. His cross and tomb are empty. He wins. Let resurrection victory glisten in your tears. Norma Jean has passed from weakness into strength, from death into life.:)
