DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 34:1-33; Daniel 2:1-23; 1 John 4:1-21

I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness. Psalm 17:15

A Christian was told by his doctor he had only a short time to live. His doctor said, “Go out and live your life to the full. Make the most of your remaining time.” The man replied, “I’m going to the land of the living. This is the land of the dying.” Revelation 21:4 says of heaven “There shall be no more death,” while Paul said “absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord” (2 Cor. 5:8). Are you a Christian nearing the
end of your earthly life? You are going to the land of the living. —Janet Fleming

Oh what a thrill one day, to find Heaven’s door is opened wide,
And Jesus there with outstretched hands to welcome me inside. —Janet Fleming
