Christians have been admonished to portray Christ-like qualities to their fellow humans, affecting where they will spend eternity.
Pastor George Willie, delivering the funeral discourse over the remains of Mother Mary Elizabeth Woboe Petors, who died in her 80th year, told a congregation of family, friends and sympathizers to be mindful of where they will spend eternity when their journey on earth eventually ends.
Pastor Willie’s theme was ‘When my journey has come to an end.’ He told mourners that the most important lesson of the home-going of Madam Petors is for them to be cognizant of the end and where they will spend eternity. (2 Timothy 4:7-8.)
The service was held at the Life Church Resurrection Power Ministries, Tweh Farm, near Island Clinic in Monrovia last Saturday, October 17.
“When the journey comes to the end,” Pastor Willie said, “all physical labors and difficulties also will end.” He told the bereaved family not to be overly worried about the home-going, since Mother Petors cared for her neighbors and others as Jesus Christ instructed his followers to do.
It is how we live and serve the Lord as Christians that will identify where we will be when our journey has come to an end,” he told the over 300 strong gathering.
Delivering his late mother’s eulogy Mr. T. Mack Petors recounted her concern for family, neighbors and members in her Tweh Farm community.
Mr. Petors called on the congregation not to forget their families. “You must be there for each other and care for each other,” he said.
Family, friends and the community paid glowing tributes to her memory, and many said she would be dearly missed.
Burial took place at the Tweh Farm cemetery, after the celebration.
