The Funeral

by Berni Dymet

Romans 10:9 ...because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

I was sitting at the funeral of a dear friend the other day. He was only in his mid fifties. 

Hundreds of people in the church, everybody shocked at the loss. The coffin - the coffin was up in the front. And as I stared at this wooden box - I thought one day, one day - each one of the hundreds of people packed into this church - one day each one of us is going to end up in one of those wooden boxes just like that.

Will it be in 50 years time? Or twenty? Ten? 5? Next year, next month? Next week? Tomorrow? 

And when we're there - in that box - all the stuff we've been stressing over, and worrying over, and slaving over - none of it will matter tuppence. A sobering thought, eh?

But there is one thing - one thing that will matter.

Because if you've confessed with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
