The loss of a loved one is truly heartbreaking but the bible tells us that there is going to be a resurrection - Acts 24:15. What does that mean for you and I? It means comfort and hope from God. The scriptures offer further words of encouragement - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Comfort when loved ones die. Hebrews 2:15 Freedom from a morbid fear of death. John 5:28,29 A real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones.
