What’s beyond the door

A.M. Hunter used to tell the story of a man suffering from a terminal illness, who asked his doctor to tell him about what lay ahead for him after he died. As the doctor fumbled for a reply, he heard a scratching at the door, and then he had his answer. “Do you hear that?” he said. “That’s my dog. I left him downstairs, but he’s grown impatient, and has come upstairs and he can hear my voice. He has no notion of what’s beyond the door, but he knows that his master is there. Isn’t it the same with you? You don’t know what lies beyond the door you’re facing, but you know that your Master is there. So there is nothing to fear.”
Jesus said: “Don’t let your hearts be troubled, you believe in God, believe in me. In my father’s house are many rooms. I am going there to prepare a place for you, that you also may be where I am.”
