Funeral/Preaching

Post by jmg »

My last surviving grandparent, my mother's mother, passed away Sunday afternoon. There's a lot I could say about her, but my wife put it best, "I think she loved Jesus more than anyone I've ever known."

My mother has asked me to preach the funeral. If I'm honest, I would rather not, but this isn't something I'm going to tell my mom "no" on. It will tomorrow (Thursday).

I am thrilled for my grandmother to be fully in the presence of our Savior. Truly, as much as I will miss her, it's been hard to really feel anything but happiness as I can't imagine her joy right now. That said, botching your grandmother's funeral is not something anyone wants to do.

Please pray that I will have clarity of mind and speech. And most importantly that I would clearly present the Gospel to those in attendance as I can think of no better way to honor my "Mimi" than by sharing our Good News. Pray for those who are lost, that they may hear God's Word, believe and repent, and be saved.
