“It is the presence of God in our lives that really transforms us. The car crash just reminded me that He’s good. Not because of the outcome, but because of His presence, because I never deserved it and He still shows up time and time again.” – Darren Mulligan, We Are Messengers
Lead singer of the band We Are Messengers, Darren Mulligan, was certain that he was about to die that day. Yet while his truck was careening off the highway, he was surprised to discover how he felt as death promised to engulf him.
Perhaps you’ve wondered how you would feel in those final seconds before death. Is it peaceful? terrifying? Maybe you’d feel nothing at all.
In those moments, you probably desperately hope to feel the warm hand of Jesus resting on your shoulder, and the strong reassurance of the Holy Spirit reminding you that no matter what, you a God’s adopted child.
If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
– Romans 14:8
