The promise of eternity in Christ
Well, we said goodbye to the Donahoo's yesterday. They are England bound as we speak. (In case you do not know the Donahoo's, they are a family from our church who is leaving to work with MTW and Grace Fellowship Church in Culcheth, England) I praise God for His faithfulness. Just as He called them to go He has provided. The Lord has used them in mighty ways among our church family at Community PCA here in Moody, AL. Our pastor put it very well last night when he said that just as the church in Anitoch did with Paul and Barnabas, we are sending out our own family for the work that the Lord has commissioned them to do. They will be missed greatly, and as we are preparing to move away as well, we think of everyone that we will miss. The great and sure hope that we have as those who are united in Christ is that we are promised eternity praising our Lord together in His very presence! That will truly be a glorious day! In light of that we must seek what the Lord is calling us to do now, while He has left us here in the world. In light of the fact that we were once enemies of God, yet so loved by Him that He sent His very Son who knew no sin, to become sin on our behalf and bear the wrath of God for us...WOW...we should be zealous for the building up of His Kingdom!
