The Glorious Days

One of the elderly clergymen fell seriously ill and was confined to bed. His right side was weakened entirely, and he could not walk, and his eyes could barely see. One of the congregation brothers who came to visit him, speaking about the memories of the past, said: “Eh, Vardapet, your good days remain in the past.”

Suddenly, the vardapet awakened, raised his head a little with an effort, and, turning his gaze to the sky, exclaimed: “No, my dear brother, my best days are yet to come when I shall see my Lord Jesus Christ in his glory, standing at the right hand of God.”

This is our hope, dear ones. We will not perish in obscurity at the end of our days on this earth. Our Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead and promised to give us eternal life. Indeed, resurrection and eternal life are the best and indispensable remedies against difficult tribulations, fear, and death. Wealth, genius, worldly pleasures, and goals cannot bring comfort in an hour of severe illness and death.

Even in the darkest and most hopeless situations, our faith and trust in the resurrection and eternal life may never waver. Undoubtedly, the day will come when we shall see “the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God” (Acts 7:56), for “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more.” (Revelation 21:4).
