Back on the 21 of November 18, Dianne reflected on the passage – Rom 10:9-10
Declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
She noted the limitations she had because of illness, and that the routine of the bed-bound was redundant and tedious, but she had faith that she would be saved not only from sin, and find eternal life, but in so doing she would also be saved from the limitations. She would have life, and have it more abundantly (John 10:10).
One of the legacies she has left me is a book on near death experiences and how those who had experienced them were transformed by them. We need not have such, evidences as “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear (Hebrews 11:1-3).” But such stories do give not “new evidence” but rather a picture of the joys that await us. A life where there is no suffering, tedium, or pain.
