The Real Be-Back

And if I go and prepare a place for you I will come back and take you to be with me.                                          John 14:3a

As my mother aged, some of the common ailments of the elderly were evident. Her general health was very good, but limited eye-sight and declining hearing handicapped her activity.  Family visits eased the boredom and loneliness.

I was able to visit her frequently, but no matter how often and how long our visits were she was never quite ready for me to leave. My assurances that I would be back gave her some comfort.

With her quick humor, she dubbed me the “Be-Back”. That quickly became my moniker and served as some comfort. She was okay knowing that her “Be-Back” would come again soon.

A bit of fun can ease a separation. It works with our little rescue dog. As we leave the house, she frets. When we assure her that we will “be-back” it seems to calm her. She goes to her lookout spot to wait.

If assurance of a return is a comfort to an aging mom and a shelter mutt, what comfort it is for us to know that our Savior will return. As believers in Jesus Christ, His salvation and His promised return, His “be-back” is more than a comfort. It’s a jumping up and down joy and excitement.

Just think – He is coming back. He will take us to live eternally with Him. He is the genuine be-back.

Will He be coming for you? Do you have that joy and that hope? It can be yours. Contact this web-site to make contact with someone who would be delighted to share His promises.

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the sacrifice that Jesus made. I  live my life knowing that I will be with You forever and forever in heaven. As the song says, “I Can Only Imagine”.
