I am pressured by both. I have the desire to depart and be with Christ-- which is far better--
but to remain in the flesh is more necessary for you.

Because the Lamb who is at the center of the throne will shepherd them; He will guide them to springs of living waters, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
