Glad Reunion Day: Song and Devotional

25 Apr

Glad Reunion Day

            My mother’s birthday was just a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, since she passed many years ago, it was more a day of remembrance than a day of celebration. I greatly miss my mom as I think of her often. But praise be to God, because of the hope we have in Jesus and the fact that she placed her faith in Him before her death, I will see her again in that glad reunion day. That will indeed be a day of celebration. The first verse of this beautiful song reminds us of this jubilant time in the future.

There will be a happy meeting in Heaven, I know
When we see the many loved ones we’ve known here below
Gathered on that blessed hilltop with hearts all aglow
That will be a glad reunion day

            In John 14, Jesus was explaining to His disciples that He was going to go to a place where they could not yet come, but later, He would come and receive them unto Himself. Though they didn’t fully understand this, Jesus was talking about His death. To comfort them in this, He said in John 14:1, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”

            Jesus’ disciples were Jews who believed in God since childhood. Now Jesus was saying, you will no longer see Me, but in the same way you believed in God, though you’ve never seen Him, believe in Me. For this reason, let not your heart be troubled. Though Jesus died, He is alive forevermore.

            Today, we place that faith in Jesus because we’ve never seen Him. But we still believe. In that same way, we have faith that our loved ones who have trusted in Jesus, though we no longer see them, we know that they are with Jesus. So, let not your heart be trouble; there will be a glad reunion day!
