Very quietly the doctor said, "I don't know." The man repiled, "You don't know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is on the other side?"
The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side of which came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.
Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened he sprang in without fear.
I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing: I know my Master is there, and that is enough. And when the door opens, I shall pass through with no fear, but with gladness."
The Bible tells us about a wonderful place called Heaven. We are given lots of little glimpses of this wondeful place. But alas, in I Corinthinas 2:9, the Bible also ultimately affirms that: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him."
I don't know everything that lies beyond death's door; but I know Heaven will be a wonderful place. And not so much because it has streets of gold and gates of pearl; but because the Master is there and waiting for those who love Him.
