No More Death

When a Christian dies we know that he has gone to be with the LORD. Nothing else could ever compare to the joy and love and peace of being with Jesus for ever and ever.

Nearly 24 hours ago I received a text message from my brother that my dad just died. It still sounds strange in my ears and I’m sitting here, shaking my head. I’m in a stage of denial, I guess, not wanting to think about this fact yet. But with his funeral coming up soon, I will have to.

Not even three months ago I’ve shared my thoughts and pain about my mom’s death. Now I’m having very similar thoughts and pain about my dad’s death. And now I need to cling unto the same comfort of not knowing whereto he has gone — hoping that, just like that one man next to Jesus on the cross, he was called home to Paradise within his last breath.

The following verses are giving me great comfort, not just after the death of a loved one who (hopefully) went to be with the LORD but especially during any time of hardship:

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

(Revelation 21:4 — KJV)
