1 Thessalonians 4

“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.” When I read those words I had just gotten a text from Jim Nichols that Sunny’s brother had just died. Buddy had been a faithful Christian all his life so his passing will of course bring pain, but our grieve when a child of God passes is different. For those of us that are in the kingdom of light there is a wonderful new beginning that awaits us when we die! Joy and suffering, birth and death, are all part of this journey and yet when this test called life is over we get to meet our Lord one day in the air when He returns. I am truly looking forward to that day!! So, yes we grieve but we do not grieve like those that have no hope! Amen!!

    Definitely! I am reminded of the thought expressed by CS Lewis that as he,ievers when we do not fully understand the specifics of God’s plan for us we need to remember that we are not even “made for this world” but for a life in eternity.
