John 6:37-39

“Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me, because I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me. And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day.”

These are truly comforting words from Jesus.

We’ve all lost someone near and dear to us.

The grief of separation is real and to be acknowledged with compassion.

But allow the grace of Jesus’ words to be received in your heart.

Your lost loved one is not lost.

Your loved one has moved on to a place of infinite love.

Jesus seems to guarantee that all who come to him will be accepted without question.

This is unconditional love.

We see from the many accounts of Near Death Experiencers that they do in fact review their lives and experience all the joy and pain they caused, but they do it in the Light of Infinite Love.

They many times identify this Light as God.

This Light seems only to want us to learn from our actions and to experience Love beyond anything we can imagine.

I experienced just the tiniest glimpse of this Love while in a hospital bed following a ruptured appendix in 1998.

I had no words adequate to explain this experience that happened in the middle of the night when I was at my lowest – and I still don’t.

All I know is that when it happened, I experienced a Love that unifies all that is.

Allow my words to bring you comfort today.
