More than a fairy tale ending …

A husband and wife shared how they, as Christians, had come up with the epitaph they wanted for themselves when they passed from this life: “… and they lived happily ever after.”

That well-known little phrase is more than a line in popular fairy tales, it is God’s promise to His children. If you have been adopted by God, the end of your story — regardless of how easy or harsh this life might have been — will be that you will “… live happily ever after.”

“For God
loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that
everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life,”
John 3:16.

“But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness,” 2 Peter 3:13.

“He will wipe every tear
from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or
pain. All these things are gone forever,”
Revelation 21:4.

Such are the things God has for those who have received Jesus Christ as both Lord and Savior. In that case, what will your epitaph be?
