This text v.50-58 is certainly about the resurrection. I am focused today on v.55-57 specifically because my wife’s mom, Fela went home to be with the Lord this morning.
Fela loved God and was ever ready to praise the Lord. She had been very ill the past few years and was ready to be, as Paul said, absent from the body and present with the Lord.
Two important lessons here, First, death has no real sting, we can and should morn not her passing but the loss we feel. For secondly, she has won the Victory! No more pain, no more suffering, she is rejoicing with her Lord and Savior tonight in Glory.
So today I ask you to rejoice with me in the vicorious life that was Fela Ortiz Dones and pray for all the family and friends that will miss her infectious smile.
