Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. We live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad."
I would prefer to be away from the body
and at home with the Lord
Today as Lee Bonham is laid to rest I am witnessing how God's perfect plan for the end of our lives is played out before my eyes. This Godly man who has served as my Elder for our 25 years will stand before the judgment seat of Christ and receive a crown with rich jewels for the good works he has done here on earth. He was charitable, generous, kind, forgiving, knowledgeable about God's Word and most of all loving. God comfort his family at this time of mourning.
He is at his eternal home with the Lord!
