Losing the People We Love - God's Grace in Our Sorrow
Video from Bdubbz
Sooner or later we will all have to face the death of a loved one.
We must all come to terms with death. Someday we will all confront our own end. As life moves forward we will also witness beloved friends and family pass from this life into the next. Death is a real enemy, a frightening enemy. “The last enemy to be destroyed is death” (1 Corinthians 15:26).
I have watched many people over the years die in front of me, some in very unpleasant circumstances. Death is ugly and the process of the death of our bodies is difficult. When we lose a loved one who is a believer, we need to remember a significant truth that will help us deal with the loss. Grief will inevitably come, but by God’s grace our sorrow does not have to overcome us. This profound truth gets to the heart of our Christian faith and offers us insight into the person of Christ, the God-man.
