We wanted to offer our condolences to your family for the loss of your loved one. At times like these, we all need comfort from family and friends and God's Word. (Matthew 5:4) We wanted to share some encouragement from the Bible that has helped us deal with the sting of death. First, we are happy to know that our family members are in God's memory, while they await the resurrection from Jesus. (John 5:28-29) We know that Jesus is eager to bring back all of our family members as he demonstrated in the past. And it is comforting to know that our family members are only asleep and not in any pain. (John 11:11-14) But we most eagerly look forward to God's Kingdom and all the wonderful promises ...that it will bring to mankind, as we are reunited with our family members. Please read these beautiful promises for yourself in the Bible and pray for God's Kingdom. (Matthew 6:9-10; Daniel 2:44; Psalm 37:11,29; Isaiah 33:24, 65:17-25; Revelation 21:3-4)Read more
