The great celebration on the River Mersey of the Three Queens of the Cunard Line is fast approaching. The three Cunard's Queens visit Liverpool between the 24-26 May 2015 for a very special "Royal Rendezvous" to celebrate the landmark 175th Anniversary of the Cunard Line. The event is being described as a water ballet as the trio, Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, sail up and down the Mersey in salute to the city of the Cunard's birth. This should be a great reunion!
Getting back together for most of us usually marks an occasion that is really worth celebrating. It might be for a birthday, an anniversary or something similar. It's good to catch up; it's interesting to see where life has taken people and it's sometimes scary when we see the changes that have taken place!
There are however some reunions we might prefer not to attend! Getting together with people who have caused us heartache can be tough. Facing up to regrets and mistakes can be heart wrenching. Not something we would choose to get involved in unless it was unavoidable! Unfortunately there are some meetings that we cannot avoid, unpleasant as they are! The most sobering one I can think of is death. This leads to our inevitable meeting with God. The Bible states the certainty of this rendezvous when it says 'it is appointed unto men once to die but after this the judgment', Hebrews 9:27. Thankfully the good news is that we can make preparation for this event; just as careful preparations have been made for a long time now for the Cunard celebrations. Jesus is recorded as saying 'the person who hears my word and believes on Him that sent me shall not come into judgment but is passed from death to life', John 5:24.
Individuals who trust Jesus in this life will find the rendezvous in the next life one that they are not nervous about. The fear of death and the fear of facing up to how we have lived has been sorted out. The truth is that He, Jesus, died for our sins. He took full responsibility for them through his sacrificial death on the cross. He offers forgiveness and a clear conscience to those who are willing to trust Him as Saviour and Lord.
I, personally, am looking forward to that rendezvous. I want to see Jesus face to face. I am not frightened to meet God. My past and my guilt has dealt with. I am saved, forgiven and happy as a result of what God has done for me through His Son, Jesus.
What about you? Are you afraid of that rendezvous? Are there things you would rather not face up to? There is a way to make things right! Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus. Pray and ask God to forgive your sins! Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
I would love to meet you at the great reunion in heaven!
