Sorrow in Death

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Jesus wept (John 11:35).

This is the shortest verse in Scripture, and though we “sorrow not as others” in the face of death, it is indeed healthy and honorable to weep at the loss of a loved one. Even our Lord Jesus Christ did so.

It is healthy because such great passion needs release. It is honorable because it is respectful to acknowledge the importance and value of loved ones whose footprints can never be matched.

Death is our enemy (I Corinthians 15:26); however, as believers we have confident expectation of resurrection.

I am the resurrection, and the life (John 11:25).

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive (I Corinthians 15:22).
