Good Morning my friends,
I wonder if people who have died and gone to Heaven know what happens on Earth? My grandparents on my dad’s side died when I was young so I really don’t have any memories of them. I often wonder if they would be proud of their only grandson? The Bible doesn’t really give us any clear answers about this, but it does hint that they may be aware of what takes place..
The writer of Hebrews whom many biblical scholars believe to be the apostle Paul reminds us of some great Old Testament hero’s who lived for God despite great opposition (Hebrews 11). He then concludes, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,” (Hebrews 12:1)
Paul paints a beautiful picture of a stadium filled with spectators, perhaps watching us as we live out our lives cheering us on as we sprint towards the finish line. So perhaps those my grandparents and your loved ones are watching us now.
What we do know for sure is that God sees us and that alone should be enough to encourage us to live for Christ and do what is right.
“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:13)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU!!! Do what is right…
I pray that YOU have an TREMENDOUS day. Blessings & much love…. D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
