Devotional Thoughts

DEVOTIONAL CORNER

“What A Day!” - “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NIV)

When Jerry and I were living in St. Louis, MO, we had the opportunity to meet Paul Harvey, a well-known radio news commentator (now deceased). His wife was from the St. Louis area and still had several relatives living there. Her brother-in-law was a member of our church. Once the Harveys came with him for a church service. When this man died, Mrs. Harvey asked Jerry to have the service. In addition to attending the service, the Harveys had a meal at a fancy hotel for friends and relatives and we were invited. Jerry also had another funeral service for a relative of Mrs. Harvey. There was another meal and more opportunity to talk with them. We found them to be very nice, friendly people.

As much fun as it was for Jerry and me to get acquainted with the Harveys, I can only begin to imagine what it will be like in heaven to see and talk with people we have read about in the Bible. Imagine talking with: Noah - about tossing in the ark during the flood; Abraham - about the test to kill his son; Joseph- about crushing disappointments and then Prime Minister of Egypt; Daniel - about spending a night with lions; Paul – a first-hand account of his conversion and travels; Mary – giving birth to the Saviour; and Jesus – face to face with Jesus! What a day that will be!

Jerry was working a funeral at Adamson’s Funeral Home for a 38-year-old mother who had been killed in a car accident. She had two little boys.  As these two little boys stood beside the casket looking at their mother, one of the funeral workers overheard the younger little boy say, “Mommy, wake up!” Someday Jesus will say to “sleeping” mommies and daddies everywhere, “Wake up!” What a day that will be!

There is a song – “What A Day That Will Be” -- that was sung at my young cousin’s funeral who was killed in a car accident. I have appreciated the words to it ever since. The chorus says: 

      “What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see, and I look upon His face—the One 

       Who saved me by His grace; When He takes me by the hand, and leads me through

        The Promised Land, What a day, glorious day, that will be.”

The Power of Love - “Love keeps no record of wrongs . . .Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 5 & 8 (NIV) 

In June after I wrote the devotional about my dad becoming a Seventh-day Adventist, I received an email from a church member wanting to know how my family functioned for a year without my dad talking to us. I told her my mother no doubt shielded me a great deal. Perhaps an 8-year-old only remembers the good, somehow blotting out the bad as I have few memories from that year.

Later as I thought some more about it, I knew there was one more thing: love.  As a small child I was really close to my dad. I remember sitting on my dad’s lap as he read stories to me. We played together, worked together, went fishing together (his love, not mine!) developed pictures in his “dark room” together, and went on family trips together. I well remember the summer he transformed an old shed into a playhouse for me. I truly loved my dad and as the text says, “Love covers over a multitude of sins.” (1 Peter 4:8)

A good biblical example of this is my favorite Bible story – the story of Joseph. He had been treated cruelly by his brothers and sold as a slave into Egypt. Years later when his brothers came to buy food, Joseph had no feelings of revenge. Mrs. White says he was “overpowered by feelings of tenderness” and “entered his chamber and wept there.” (PP, p. 228)  When he revealed who he was, he told them not to be grieved nor angry with themselves for selling him, “for God did send me before you to preserve life.”  Again trying to ease their fear and discomfort, he said, “So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God.” (PP, pages 230-231) What a beautiful example of forgiveness and love!

Mrs. White says, “He who beholds the Saviour’s matchless love will be elevated in thought, purified in heart, transformed in character. (DA, p.661) A number of biblical characters were transformed by that love. Zacchaeus was “overwhelmed, amazed, and silenced at the love and condescension of Christ in stooping to him, so unworthy.” (DA, p;554) He responded to that love by showing compassion and love to others. Mary Magdalene’s life was changed by spending time with Jesus. “It was the love of Christ that constrained her.” (DA, p. 564) John, who came into closest association with Jesus, was at one time called a Son of Thunder because of his temper and other negative character traits. But day by day “he beheld the tenderness and forbearance of Jesus . . . By beholding Christ he became transformed in character.” (DA, pp. 295-296)

And that is what love will do. Paul says, “And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)
