We have said farewells with promises too –
– to parents – to study hard, and to return with news of good success
– to a dying one – to keep up the good name of the family or to look after a beloved
– to live for Christ in a world darkened by sin
– to be faithful to write ever so often or to call or to visit a loved one left behind at home or in a retirement or convalescing home.
Have you fulfilled your promises made when it was time for you to go away?
Jesus made a promise when He left for heaven’s glory after the resurrection .
He will keep it
In hope we know.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3
