Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Where Are They Now?

on June 20, 2021

2 Corinthians 5:5b- “…to be absent from the body (is to) be present with the Lord.”

A television show that I often watch is called “Where Are They Now? “People write in, asking Oprah Winfrey to update them on what some of her past guests—childhood actors, or otherwise newsworthy people—are doing, now.

It is interesting to see what they look like, currently, and what they are doing with their lives. Some, sadly, have passed away. 

Watching recently, I felt God’s leading to remind readers that we can be assured of the eternal abode of our fellow Christians. 

We don’t have to ask, “Where Are They Now?” We know that believers will immediately be present with our Lord in Heaven when they leave this earth.

As a small child, I was extremely frightened of dying. I remember having terrible nightmares. My mother would respond to my outcries with patience and understanding. It wasn’t until I came to faith in Jesus in the 6th grade, that she and I got a good night’s sleep!

 I never again had a nightmare about dying!

Scripture comforts those of us faced with our own death or that of our loved ones who know Christ. But, for those who don’t, may this encourage us to go to them in love and share the gospel—today! 

Let’s not be left asking, “Where Are They Now?”
