January 6th is my father’s birthday. This year will be the first time he celebrates it in heaven. This is something I never thought I would be able to say with confidence because for many years he did not want to hear anything about Jesus or God from me. We did to have a very good relationship for a long time due to various reasons. I have previously written about how after I expressed forgiveness that we were able to talk about Jesus and pray together.
I was able to with him when he died and comfort him by reading from the bible to him and praying. He was not alone which was important to me. Now he is experiencing the glorious wonders of heaven. He is with Jesus and much better off than we are. I can say this with confidence not based on my father and how he lived his life since that is not what the decision is based on. God decides based on if we accept His son Jesus. It is a free gift God offers to all who will receive His son Jesus.
