“Depart: Good and Bad”-A Devotion

by Victor Knowles

I was thinking of the word "depart" this morning. In every airport there are departures and arrivals. Paul said to depart and be with Christ was far better than remaining here on earth. That's because to die is gain. We gain heaven.

But Jesus will say to some on Judgment Day, "Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels." There is a heaven to gain and a hell to shun. The word "depart" is a double-edged sword. It is far better to depart and be with Christ than to be told to depart and be with the devil and his angels.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
