Present with the Lord

Updated: Nov 26, 2022

The Bible teaches that, for believers, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8). In the day that the Lord chooses for our own gracious departure, what a joy and complete pleasure it will be—to leave the cares of this life, the defilement of sin, and the brokenness of our bodies; and to be welcomed by Christ, to see the throne of God, to enter into the joy of the Lord, to hear the glorious and holy praises of the angels, and to wonder with the saints at the splendor and beauty of Christ; to worship God forever.


No more sin; only perfect righteousness. What we placed faith in during this life, will then be sight. All of our hope will be fulfilled. And there in the presence of God, we will abide in perfect love, for all eternity. Spurgeon wrote, O What A Freedom Is Thine! Freedom from Condemnation. Freedom to the Promises, Freedom to the Throne of Grace, and at last Freedom to Enter Heaven!


For us now, to remain is more needful. Let us serve the Lord faithfully and wholeheartedly. Let us serve others and seek to help them spiritually. Let us tell the lost about the great eternal home the Lord offers them in Christ.
