Simon Peter asked, ‘Lord, where are you going?’ And Jesus replied, ‘You can’t go with me now, but you will follow me later.'” (John 13:36 NLT)

During Jesus’ final days, He began preparing His disciples for His leaving. I imagine it was quite a shock to His followers, who reacted with a combination of panic and denial. So, Jesus gives them this word of comfort: You may not go with me now, but one day you will, and at that moment you’ll know how to get there.

For anyone that’s been to the funeral of a loved one, this may be our only word of hope too. It’s hard to say “goodbye”. So if we walk in the footsteps of Christ, it’s no longer “goodbye” but “see you later”! Death is not an end, only a door to another journey that we will all must make!

As you live today, do not live in denial of your future in eternity. If we Christians are wrong, nobody suffers, but if we’re right, those unprepared will. It’s not about be good, but being holy. Know today that your future is prepared and reserved! Live ready for both worlds! You are loved today!
