Sadly, we attended a funeral today of a teenager that went to our church.
Marcus and I served as greeters and it was an honor.
As far as funerals go, it was awesome!
Can you say that about a funeral?
His sisters and parents all spoke. It was pretty amazing. They said they could do that because they know Chance is in Heaven and they get to see him again one day. They have peace. They are sad and will miss him, but just for a short time, not eternity.
I loved hearing the stories about Chance from his family and football coach and our Pastor. There was lots of laughter! He was a great guy. He did not get into Heaven for being a great guy though. He is in Heaven now because he accepted Christ. He knew Jesus was the only way. Nobody is "good enough" to get into Heaven. And 42 people accepted Christ after the funeral, because of the testimony of this young man.
That's a life well lived!
If this Jesus and Heaven stuff is foreign to you, please feel free to ask me ANY questions. I won't be offended or get judgey about anything.
We are not promised tomorrow.
