When I got married almost 35 years ago, I moved from my hometown to my husband's hometown. Although I visit my hometown quite frequently, I lost contact with so many people I used to know. Recently I joined Facebook and have been getting in contact with so many people that I knew and grew up with. It has been so exciting to see pictures of friends and family and to talk with them and get re-aquainted. To be able to type in a name and find someone I had forgotten about for years and to make contact with them and find out about their lives...what they are doing now.....how many children and grandchildren they now have.
Facebook has not only been a way to find someone I used to know, but it has been a way to express my faith in God with others and they with me. It has been a way to let some of them know how important they were in my life. One friend in particular named Karron, I was able to let her know how much I loved art class with her in Jr. High. She was a pastor's daughter and everyday when we got in art class, she would start telling us about different things in the Bible. Karron played an important part in my love for the Lord.
Facebook......it reminds me of another book that will one day soon be opened. The Book of Life! Will I be able to check this book in heaven to find family and friends to see if they made it?????
What joy I will experience when I make contact with them!!! I'll be able to sit down with them and tell them how they made a difference in my life just as I told Karron a few days ago.
Facebook....it reminds me of that Book of Life that my name is written in and because of that I will soon see Jesus face to face in person and not on a computer.
Revelation 20:12...And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
Revelation 20:15...And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Facebook.....what a wonderful way to tell all my friends and family about Jesus and about another book they need to join.. The Book Of Life!
I pray that all you that read this will have your name inscribed in the Book Of Life and someday we will get to meet each other face to face.
