Who of us hasn't wept at the graveside of a loved one,
or mourned their loss with so many questions unanswered?
Will we know our loved ones in heaven?
Will we see their face again?
Death is sorrowful with its separation,
it's hard for those that we leave behind.
Those who love much often grieve deeply,
feeling the heartache of their empty chair.
Yet, we sorrow for those who fall asleep in Jesus,
but not as those who have no hope.
The Scriptures are woven with the comfort
that not only will we know our loved ones in heaven,
but we will be together with them also.
Although we grieve the loss of our loved ones,
we'll have eternity to be with those in the Lord.
The familiar sound of their voice will call out your name.
So shall we ever be with the Lord.
What about our loved ones who may have died without Jesus?
Will you see their face again?
Who knows that they haven't trusted Jesus
in their last moments?
We may never know this side of heaven.
"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time
are not worthy to be compared
with the glory which shall be revealed in us."
~ Romans 8:18
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel,
and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds
to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
~ 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
Do you have the assurance that when you die
you will be in the presence of the Lord in heaven?
Death for a believer is but a doorway
that open up into eternal life.
Those who fall asleep in Jesus
shall be reunited with their loved ones in heaven.
Those you've laid in the grave in tears,
you shall meet them again with joy!
Oh, to see their smile and feel their touch...
never to part again!
