The King is Coming


Today was a special and a sad day.  A day of rejoicing and a day of mourning.

If you’ve figured I was talking about a funeral-memorial service, than you  figured right.

Today we honored a man of faith who died earlier this week. Jim was an incredible man of faith. I was given the privilege of sharing about Jim.

Let me share a little bit more about his faith.

Monday night when I was visiting Jim, his wife and family, they were playing an album by the Statler Brothers for Jim.  The song that was playing when I arrived was Bill Gaither’s “The King is Coming.”  A powerful song.  A song of truth.  And a song of comfort and I got to see it comfort someone first hand.  “The King is Coming” was Jim’s favorite song and it brought him comfort.

But more than that, Jim was comforted by the Statler’s album about Jesus’ life.  Jim’s final hours were filled with the word of God, in song, specifically the Gospel, the life of Jesus, and the final song, “The King is Coming.”

Jim’s God is the God of comfort and Jim experienced that in his final moments and knows that now in God’s eternal hands.

You will find comfort with Jesus too.  He is the believer’s strength.

  1. In my view, blogthechurch.wordpress.com does a excellent job of covering topics of this sort. Even if ofttimes deliberately polemic, the posts are more often than not well researched and stimulating.

  3. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?Thanks

    • I am having trouble finding out how to remove you from the notify service. I will have to contact the administrator for help.
