Today I will be attending a home going celebration. And as I was sitting here, an instant thought came, it will be hard to say goodbye. But then, immediately I heard, there is hope. What is that hope?
Well, I know that those who die in Christ, have eternal life. I know that this body we are in, is temporary. I know that when Jesus returns, those that are sleep in Christ will rise first. I know that we will receive a glorified body. I do not know what the glorified body will look like, but I know it won't look like it looks now, it will not have pain...it will not have heartache... it will not grow old.. it will not die again, glory to God!!! There is hope!!
There will still be a period of bereavement, and that is a good thing. But there is hope.
If you have recently celebrated a home going, be encouraged!! There is hope!! There is eternal life with our Father!
A hard goodbye, but a worshiping welcome home!! 1 Corinthians 15: 49-58
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
