When I make my journey to Kenya in a few weeks, and then home again, I’ll have to fly on 7 different planes and pass through 9 airports. The travel time will be a total of over 68 hours. Total distance by air is 22,990 miles at a cost of 9 cents per mile.
The Bible says that to be absent from the body means being present with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8).
For the one whose trust is in Christ Jesus alone, upon death our:
- Flight time to Heaven is instantaneous;
- Distance traveled is immeasurable;
- Cost to us, nothing; cost to God, the death of His Son;
- Time waiting in airports is nil.
And thus we shall always be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
