A dear man from OPC has gone home. Ken Bradley has been in a cancer struggle for over 7 years. He's been fighting and suffering as his body has deteriorated. His family has been with him praying and waiting. And now, he's restored. He's walking with a healed body. He's breathing with healthy clear lungs. He's in a state of no pain. He's looking into the eyes of his Savior and seeing the depth of love held for him there.
And in heaven Ken is partying like never before. What a way to start a new year -- walking streets of gold, seeing the saints who have gone before, knowing that it was real and worth it. And being completely convinced of God's faithfulness.
We're not alone. That sweet Savior has left his best friend to abide with us; and the Holy Spirit is willing to comfort, assure and provide us with hope.
Dear Bradley family -- take heart. God is near. Heaven is rejoicing and crying at the same time for you.
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." Psalm 116:15. That's a party I'd like to see.
