The Lord Is Near

ICYMI this morning.

True Men

Waiting for your room to be ready.

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?
John 14:1-2

Your room isn’t ready yet. When it is, then Jesus will come back for you and take you home.

On a Saturday afternoon, Tom’s room was ready and he went home. He was ready. He had been ready since November of 1963 when he was made a child of God through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism.

On the day Tom was baptized the Lord came near Tom. He fulfilled the desire of Tom by forgiving his sin and giving him new life. An abundant life filled with gracious blessings from God – a wonderful wife, faithful children, the joy of grandchildren.
