The time of my departure is at hand. 2 Timothy 4:6
How often have I noticed when headed home from my travels a relief and release, a lessening of strain and tension. Nothing bothers me, I feel great, I am going home!
Should it not be so with us Christian pilgrims who seek a country? Why should earth’s cares pester us? We are on our way home, and nothing can stop us. Death itself but speeds the arrival and is a paying proposition, for “to depart and be with Christ is far better.” “To die is gain.”
