Offering Hope and Encouragement in the Midst of Sorrow



               

     We Grieve, But Not Without Hope

Today I have come to lay my beloved’s body in the ground as my parents have done for hundreds of generations, knowing that the day of resurrection will come and God’s children will share the glory. The Bible says in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O DEATH, WHERE IS THY STING? O GRAVE, WHERE IS THY VICTORY? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I Corinthians 15: 54-57
