Throne Trip Tuesdays - Death


A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to 

Leave the examination room and said, 

'Doctor, I am afraid to die. 

Tell me what lies on the other side.' 

Very quietly, the doctor said, 'I don't know..' 

'You don't know?  You're, a Christian man, 

and don't know what's on the other side?' 

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; 

On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, 

And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room 

And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. 

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, 

'Did you notice my dog? 

He's never been in this room before. 

He didn't know what was inside. 

He knew nothing except that his master was here, 

And when the door opened,  he sprang in without fear. 

I know little of what is on the other side of death, 

But I do know one thing... 

I know my Master is there and that is enough.'  
Do you know the Master? I encourage you to seek Him today, This Day!

Peace and Joy,

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 (NKJV) 14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
