Comfort

Today while writing letters to a few families who have lost loved ones, I decided that not only should I express my condolences with them but also add in quite a few scriptures that I feel will bring comfort to anyone who has ever lost a dear loved one. I’d like to share them with all of you:

  • “Death is to be brought to nothing.” -1 Corinthians 15:26
  • “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” -Revelation 21:4
  • “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice, and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life….” -John 5:28,29
  • “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” -Acts 24:15
  • “Moreover, brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who are sleeping in death, so that you may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope. For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again, so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus.” -1 Thessalonians 4:13,14
  • “There is an appointed time for everything.  A time for every activity under the heavens….” -Ecclesiastes 3:1
  • “Jehovah is close to the broken hearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” -Psalm 34:18
