Different Type of Grieving

My wife just attended the funeral of a young lady who had led a faithful Christian life. This service for Jodi Flinchum truly was a celebration of her life. There was joy through the tears as the mourners reflected not only on the life of their loved one, but on the eternal life that she is now experiencing with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Those who don’t know Jesus can’t possibly experience the kind of hope that we Christians have. Without the certainty of eternal life, the despair that is felt by those who survive is more than anyone should have to bear.

Thank God we have the opportunity to grieve in a different way!

“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.”—1Thessalonians 4:13.
