Life and Death in Nursing Home Ministry

orig_old_hands_on_bible-300x222One of the residents I minister to at a local nursing home died this last Thursday. He leaves behind his wife of 68 years, another one of the residents at the nursing home. Though weak and frail, he was faithfully trusting in Christ and eager for glory.

The sobering reminder of death is one of the several lessons I’ve learned in this ministry—and also the blessedness: “Blessed are those who die in the Lord from now on!” (Revelation 14:13).

I wrote about these lessons in a post for The Gospel Coalition. You can read it here.
