And now, dear brothers, I want you to know what happens to a Christian when he dies so that when it happens, you will not be full of sorrow, as those are who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and then came back to life again, we can also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him all the Christians who have died -1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14, The Living Bible
What a comforting thought, especially when you have suffered the pain of losing a loved one. We have the blessed assurance that just as Jesus died and was brought back to life again, when He returns, our loved ones will be brought back to life again too. Death will not have the last say. We have victory over it because of Jesus. Let this amazing truth encourage you today.
