  1. My deepest sympathies and condolesces go to the family of Mrs. Mary Wilson.

    It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. And when it happens, the thought of never again being able to talk to, laugh with, or hold your loved one can be most difficult to bear. That pain is not necessarily erased by being told that your loved one is up in heaven.

    When death takes your child, your husband, your wife, your parent, your friend, it is truly what the Christian writer Paul called it, ‘the last enemy.’ There is hope. Death will not continue to rob mankind of their loved ones indefinetly.

    When Jesus was on earth there was an occassion that deeply grieved him. He met a widow of Nain and saw her dead son. The Bible account tells us: ‘As [Jesus] got near the gate of the city [Nain], why, look! there was a dead man being carried out, the only-begotten son of his mother. Besides, she was a widow. A considerable crowd from the city was also with her. And when the Lord caught sight of her, he was moved with pity for her, and he said to her: ‘Stop weeping.’ With that he approached and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still, and he said: ‘Young man, I say to you, Get up!’ And the dead man sat up and started to speak, and he gave him to his mother. Now fear seized them all, and they began to glorify God, saying: ‘A great prophet has been raised up among us,’ and, ‘God has turned his attention to his people.” – Luke 7:12-16. Notice how Jesus was moved with pity, so that he resurrected the widow’s son! Imagine what that portends for the future!

    This example was just a small foregleam of what Jesus will do in the very near future. Millions therefore can have the solid hope of seeing their loved ones alive again on earth but under very different circumstances. Yes, Jesus Christ promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions. May Mrs. Wilson be among them.

    May the God of comfort be with you.
