Because wanting to be reunited with my father in heaven

Yesterday, our brother in Christ, Mr. H. of 65 years old had returned back to heaven.  5 years ago, the pancreatic cancer was found, and he had fought for his life since then.


By being beside with him through his fight against cancer, I found an assurance of hope in his Christianfaith.  


Some may complain to God by saying, why do you make me suffer through cancer?  Yet, Mr. H. said the cancer made me realized how wonderful the salvation of Christ is.  I am trulythankful for it.  Knowing that I will be able to win the victory over death and to receive an eternal life is so precious to me.  


Death is cruel which takes away everything.  The work, the family, and everything we have.  But when Mr. H. told me about his faith, his eyes were filled with tears of joy.


Not only that, his daughter who teaches at a university came and talked to me.  She said I have been to the church since I was little.  But I couldnt take a step forward to be a Christian.  But, because I want to be reunited with my father in heaven, I also want to receive His salvationI wish to be baptized.  Do you think that such motivation is inappropriate?  I told her if you wish to be baptized hoping that would cure his disease, then I would say it would be an inappropriate motivation.  However, if you wish to be reunited with him in heaven, I find no faulty motivation.  Soon after, westarted the preparation study for her baptism.  On August 26th, she confessed her faith, and was baptized.  It was such a heart touching moment.


The Bible says;

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Roman 8:28, NIV)


Do you have an assured hope that you will win the victory over death?  I want you to find such hope through the Bible.  Please come to the church.  I welcome you sincerely.
