    Devotional~ Absent From the Body, Present With the Lord

    Post by Susan on Thu Jul 01, 2010 10:12 am

    From an email:

    Absent From the Body, Present With the Lord
    Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers

    BIBLE MEDITATION:
    2 Corinthians 5:8 - “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”

    DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
    A man named Solomon Peas died. His tombstone in London reads:
    “Beneath these clouds and beneath these trees,
    Lies the body of Solomon Peas.
    But this ain’t Peas - it’s just the pod.
    Peas shelled out and went to God.”
    I like that. That’s what your body is. It’s just a pod. What happens to a child of God who has trusted Christ as his personal Savior? When he closes his eyes in this life, he opens them in the next. Jesus did not say, “After two or three thousand years, you’ll be with Me in paradise.” Jesus said, “Today, truly, you’ll be with Me in paradise” (Luke 23:43).

    ACTION POINT:
    Are you confident that, if you died today, you’d be with Jesus in paradise? If not, then confess your sins and believe upon His name to save you. Now, go and tell someone!
