Someone in our church passed away last week. He was young and gifted and as many have testified, he was in love with Jesus. We attended his funeral this past Sunday and it was a sweet mix of sorrow and hope. Sorrow for someone leaving us so soon and hope for the promise of knowing that those who loved him will see him again.
The sting of death. It hurts. It crushes.
But how good to know that we, those of us who profess Christ, do not grieve as the world grieves. No, we will be reunited in a perfect place. Heaven.
