One year ago today

" If you give up your life for me, you will find it" Matthew 10:39b

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

Jesus was the greatest example to all of us of what it looks like to lay down your life in order that others may gain. He lost everything for our sake.
Sometimes, people come into our lives who provide a reminder of this, when we may seem to forget because life gets busy, just how much this means.

Jose was one of those people, to a lot of people.
He was a reminder of just how great love can be, how much God can use us for his glory. And now, Jose has been with Him for a year. I wonder how that year has gone. I am jealous for him, not of him.

Happy spiritual birthday Jose.

Today was the day you were brought to life with Christ for eternity. What a glorious place to be.
