June 2002



A friend in Belgium, whose church had just been visited by a team of Canadians, wrote: They were a great help . . . everyone found saying goodbye so difficult.  You know that feeling – especially if you may never meet the new friends again.

We’ve just said good-bye to an old friend.  She moved to Maybole in the 1950s and became a member of our church.  She was well known for her services to the town and its people.  It was not easy to say good-bye.

Preparing  for  the  funeral  service,  I  was  struck  again by Paul’s  words: . . . we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. 1 Thessalonians 413     

Of course, the process of dying may or may not be easy, but those who believe in Jesus Christ can face death in that confidence.  That is why Paul added: We believe that Jesus died & rose again & so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.     1 Thessalonians 414

Saying Good-Bye to one

who trusted Jesus for salvation makes me ask:

Do I Face Death With The Confidence & Hope Paul Declares?

Do you?,

If your answer is not an assured YES,

let me urge you to turn to Him, today.
