How To Place Our Loved Ones In The Hands Of Christ!
Now I am departing from the world; they are staying in this world, but I am coming to you. Holy Father, you have given me your name; now protect them by the power of your name so that they will be united just as we are.
John 17:11 (NLT)
They Are Staying In This World,
Christ has an exceedingly great love for each member of His Body. While He was living on the earth He was able to protect His disciples from harm, watching over them constantly in the many hours of prayer spent before His Father in the mountains of Judea.
Now it was necessary for Christ to leave His cherished followers and return to His Father in Heaven. He was placing His disciples in the care of the Father.
We too must learn to place the people whom we love in the care of Christ and God. We take care of them and pray for them while we are with them. If we should be separated from them for a season, or if they or we should die, we have complete confidence that our loved ones are safe in God.
Such committal of people is not always easy to make. Once we make it and we know God has heard our prayers for their well being, we have rest and peace concerning our loved ones. They are in the best of care. They are safe in the Presence of God whether on the earth or in Heaven.
The Spirit of God seems to be speaking that a period of great tribulation and danger soon is to come to the nations of the earth. In such an hour it will be critically important that we know how to place our loved ones in the hands of Christ for safekeeping.
