Do you know that believers are in the perfect “win/win” situation? We get to enjoy a great life now and an eternal life of indescribable detail.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 – Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. 14We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
We grieve, but not the same as those who do not believe.
Funerals are much different for those that know their eternal destination. Yes, we miss our loved ones and being apart from one another can be deeply painful… BUT, we look forward to an amazing reunion! We can live without fear of death
Through Christ, Jesus, we celebrate both life now and eternal life that goes beyond our earthly days. Our hope is not only for today, but for all the days yet to come.
