Peace in Terminal Illness

On June 29, 1995, a doctor said to me, “You have cancer.  It has spread to your spine and ribs.”
So I know how you feel if you have a terminal illness.

No one is prepared to receive that kind of report.  At first the news is so shocking you can’t realize the full meaning of it.  You walk out of the doctor’s office in a daze.

It’s devastating—unless…

…unless you know that when you leave this life you will go straight to Heaven!
Can we really know that? for sure?

Yes!  I John 5:13 says, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life ….”

The Apostle Paul wrote in the Bible, “Having a desire to depart and be with Christ; which is far better:”
(Philippians 1:23).

He also wrote, “I am ready…to be offered.”  What did he mean?  He was in a Roman prison and knew he was about to be martyred (decapitated)—and he said, “I am ready.” He did not say, “I’m e said, “I am ready.”

Ready to die!

How could he speak with such wonderful peace?  Because he had such wonderful assurance that when he left this life he’d immediately be with Christ in Heaven!

How could Paul be so sure?  The same way you can be sure!!

Paul knew, and if you don’t already know, you can know:
• That all of us are lost,  helpless sinners. “For all have sinned,” (Romans 3:23) and, “There is none righteous, no, not one,” (Romans 3:10).
• That “the wages of sin is death,” (Romans 6:23).
• That you may have what Paul had:  forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life.

All genuine gifts are free.  God’s gift of eternal life can be yours because the Lord Jesus Christ paid for our sins when He died on the cruel cross of Calvary:  “Who…when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high,” (Hebrews 1:3).
