JMPC Sunshine 10.29.2020

When my father died, I conducted the funeral. As I was picking the hymns we were going to
sing, I decided on “I’ll Fly Away” by Albert E. Brumley. Here is the chorus:
I’ll fly away, oh glory
I’ll fly away in the morning
When I die, Hallelujah by and by
I’ll fly away
I also picked the contemporary song “That Where I Am There You May Also Be”, by Rich
Mullins. Some of the words:
In my Father’s house there are many, many rooms
In my Father’s house there are many, many rooms
And I’m going up there now to prepare a place for you
That where I am, there you may also be
Good upbeat music for a service celebrating not the life of my Dad, but my Dad’s eternal life. Is
that what happens? Do we fly away from our life here and go to the place Jesus has prepared for
us in his Father’s house? Paul puts it this way in 2 Corinthians 5:1:
For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a
house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
So what are we to make of this? In the Apostles’ Creed we affirm that we believe in the
“resurrection of the body and the life everlasting”. But what does that mean? Is that heaven?
People have been trying to imagine what the afterlife is like since the dawn of time. The
Sadducees asked Jesus whose wife the woman who had been widowed by seven brothers would
be at the resurrection. Christians have been debating what “heaven” is like since the early
church. There are many people who claim to have been there and come back with pretty
remarkable descriptions. So what can we as Christians know about our eternal life in the
presence of God? Find out what to make of all this when Pastor Jeff preaches “For All the
Saints” on All Saints Sunday, November 1 at 10am in the John McMillan Presbyterian
Church parking lot and on Facebook Live.
