Toward the end of his life someone asked my husband: “Now that your book is finally in print, would there yet be something you would like to continue to say to us?”

His reply: “Well I don’t think so. But if I had to sum things up, I would say three words: ‘Take God seriously.’”

So now I ask myself: “If you were in a similar situation how might you sum things up?” And I think my reply would be something like this: “As members of God’s family we are all ‘Works in Progress’ struggling to serve the Lord here as we prepare to serve Him in Eternity. The more we are able to depend on Him while we are here on earth, the more excellent our ability to serve.’”

And here is God’s Word about serving Him in eternity:

And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 22:3-5, King James Version)
