Letter: Take time to glorify Jesus as you transition through life

As I sat and read the Lodi News-Sentinel, I noticed the caption “Letters Invited” and I thought, “should I write a letter?” The response urged me on, “why not?” Here I was in a melancholy mindset — maybe because my sweet, dear uncle Frank Silveira had just had his funeral — being the last of his generation in our family to go on to glory.

I am reminded by the movies recently coming out, ”Son of God,” “God is not Dead,” and “Heaven is for Real,” that this life is temporary, and what is important is the eternal. The wisest man according to scripture was Solomon, and he said that it was more important to go to a funeral then to a party because it is an opportunity to be reminded of what really matters. As Andy Stanley recently preached, even if it is remotely possible that the only way to eternal life is Jesus why not receive him into your heart so that your life is not in vain.

So as I read the paper, reflecting on Pine Auto closing and knowing that all things are in transition, I agree with its owner Jerry Lawson that hope brings us to bigger and better things. For me, my hope is in Jesus, and I take the opportunity that he has given me to glorify him by faith.
