Brothers and Sisters, we do not grieve as if there is no hope. We have this blessed assurance from Scripture that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die (John 11:25-26). Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you may also be where I am" (John 14:1-4).
Though we may miss our family members, friends and loved ones on earth, we can rejoice knowing that we will see them again since anyone who dies in Jesus Christ lives in heaven. Revelation 14:13 states, "Then I heard a voice from heaven say, 'Write: blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.' 'Yes,' says the Spirit, 'they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.'" What glorious benefits of salvation we have!
Remembering our dearly departed family members, active military, and veterans by reflecting on their godly influence in our lives is one of the many ways to give honor to God for his blessings toward us! Have a blessed Memorial Day Holiday. Jesus saves!
Romans 6:23 ESV
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
John 14:6 ESV
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Philippians 3:20-21 ESV
But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lo body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
Revelation 21:3-4 ESV
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
