Packing for a getaway to the mountains can be challenging, especially when it’s cold there, but hot where you live. You have to think about what you will wear while there, but also consider what you will wear on the way home so you don’t have a heat stroke. It’s time to dust off the jacket, and dig out the boots! If it was just me packing for me, it wouldn’t be so bad, but I pack for my husband and two dogs, you know the dogs need jackets too! Then we have to try and fit everything in the truck, because where we’re going, we will probably need power tools! It makes me feel like I’m leaving Egypt and packing everything I will need for the next forty years! Wouldn’t it be nice to just get in the truck and go without a care? The luxuries of today keep us needing all the comforts of home wherever we go. There is one trip we will eventually go on that all you will take with you is your memories, and the love in your heart. Your treasures will have already been accumulated, and waiting for you. It will be then that the agony of living in the world of the evil one will be over, and we will be set free, and the riches of the Father will be ours to enjoy, we will be home! The only reason you should be afraid to die, is if you don’t have Jesus. He’s the best reason for living, or dying.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:16-18
