The Afterglow

I was reading a book yesterday that spoke on an interesting concept - it spoke of living such a good life that when you have passed from this life, that there is an 'Afterglow'. This is a summary of what it was saying:

"Every Life leaves after an AFTERGLOW – this could be an inspiration of goodness, beauty, passion for something, truth, or anything else..." 

If you have ever watched a glorious sunset, you will note that just after the sun has sunk below the horizon, there is a moment when the light is good for photo's - it could be called an 'Afterglow' of sorts. The day has come to an end, but there is still something left for us to marvel at. 

When Jesus died, all his enemies thought they had triumphed over him, but Jesus had a long Afterglow. In fact, the Afterglow of Jesus' life still lives on in the presence of his Spirit. He may have returned to the Father, but the Holy Spirit remains with us forever.

May you bask in the afterglow of the presence of Jesus and may you be touched by his grace.

John 11:25 - Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.

Living in Grace
