THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A FALLEN HERO…WELL, NOT REALY FALLEN BUT RISEN. Jose Quintero is just that. A RISEN HERO! That’s what happens when we pass from this life. We, as believers in Jesus Christ don’t die, because we already have. We have died once to sin but we live eternally through Jesus Christ. [Romans 6:10-11] “For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ALIVE TO GOD IN CHRIST. How can we not rejoice over Jose’s newfound state, in his heavenly home with our Lord and Savior. We are sad and we will grieve because of the temporary separation with Jose. What I’m going to do to celebrate his life is spend the rest of my days on earth trying to be what he was. We obviously have the testimony of Jesus to aspire to but there are certain and few people that help us in that quest. Jose Quintero is one of them. His love for Jesus, faithfulness to the call of God, his integrity and love for people and so much more about his character that will continue to shine as an example to us all. God bless Jose and God has already blessed all of us for having the privilege of knowing him. A FALLEN HERO? NOT AT ALL…BUT ONE WHO HAS RISEN TO BE WHERE JESUS IS!
