I recall stating to a friend, “I hear you lost your wife. I’m very sorry.” He replied, “No, I
didn’t lose her. You can’t lose something when you know where it is—and I know where she
is!” On the authority of the Word of God, we also know what will happen: Jesus Christ will
one day return and bring His people with Him.
Whether we Christians live or die, we have nothing to fear because Jesus will come either
with us or for us! The fact of His return is a comfort to our hearts.
The Christian doctrine of resurrection assures us that death is not the end. The grave is not the
end. The body goes to sleep, but the soul goes to be with the Lord (Philippians 1:20-24).
When the Lord returns, He will bring the soul with Him, will raise the body in glory, and will
unite body and soul into one being to share His glory forever.
Can you say this? “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21).
For further thought: Job 19:25; John 5:21-29; 11:25; 14:19;
1 Thessalonians 4:14.
Action assignment: Plan to share these thoughts with someone today. Ask God to help you
do it.
