Read: John 11:38-44

When was the last funeral that you attended?  Funerals are a time to celebrate the life of a loved one who has died, but they also are a time to grieve together over someone you now miss.  As a Pastor, I have had the privilege of officiating at many funeral services.  They are days filled with raw emotion . . . but on funeral days, I am also thankful that I can share hope.  Because of Jesus Christ, death does not have to be the end.  Jesus came to offer Eternal Life to all who would receive it.  Just as Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead in John 11, we too can have the hope of resurrected life.  Not walking out of the grave as Lazarus did, but of going to be with Jesus forever if we have placed our faith in Him.

Question of the Day:  Is death a scary thing for you?  How does knowing Jesus help you have hope in the face of death?

  2. Kelly – Thanks for the encouragement. There is a LOT of art talent at Wildwood. The work they have contributed is so special. I love to write these devotionals . . . I’m just encouraged that someone is reading them 🙂 Thanks for sharing. To God be the glory.
