Comfort in Time of Loss
You have lost a loved one.
I know how you feel. Please accept this little tract as a token of sympathy.
I have lost loved ones, too. Death took my parents, seven sisters, four brothers, and my precious wife of many years. I understand your grief and loneliness and sorrow, and I have a message of comfort for you.
There is a place called Heaven. If your loved one trusted Christ for salvation, he or she is in Heaven now! The Bible says that, for those who have trusted Christ, to be “absent from the body” is “to be present with the Lord” in Heaven (2 Corinthians 5:8; I Peter 3:22).
Perhaps you’ve lost a baby or a little child. That precious one is in Heaven, and you can know that you are going to be with that child someday, just as David knew after losing his baby. He said with assurance, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” (2 Samuel 12:23).
During my many years of ministry, I have stood beside the caskets of the departed and watched as loved ones walked past, their hearts filled with grief, their faces bathed with tears. There are two kinds of funerals: those without hope and those with hope.
Hope can be yours. You can know that you will go immediately to God’s Heaven when you leave this world. You can know this with as much assurance as David knew that he would join his baby in Heaven.
You ask, “How can I find this assurance?” It is found in the Person of Jesus Christ. He is the only One who can give you the assurance that you will meet your loved ones again beyond the grave. He said of Himself in John 3:36, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life.”
He is the only way to Heaven. Luke, speaking of Him, wrote in Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”  Jesus Himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
Christ is the way to the Father in Heaven because He bore your sins and mine when He was nailed to the cross. 1 Peter 2:24 says that He “bare our sins in His own body on the tree”; and it says again in 1 Peter 3:18, “Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh…”
