Thank You For Your Kindness

Please accept this little tract as a token of gratitude for your comfort and concern.  Thank you for weeping “with them that weep,” as the Bible describes in Romans 12:15.  According to John 11:35, even Jesus wept with those who wept because He understands sorrow.

If you’ve ever lost a loved one, you understand my grief, loss and loneliness.  However, despite the pain, there is comfort and hope because of the promises of God, who is personally interested in us and is “touched with the feeling of our infirmities” (Hebrews 4:15).

There is a place called Heaven.  My loved one trusted Christ for salvation, and, because of this, is in Heaven now!  The Bible makes it clear that when one who trusts Christ dies, he or she is “absent from the body” and “present with the Lord” (II Corinthians 5:8).  So it is that we know we will be reunited someday.  And it has been promised that in Heaven He will “wipe away all tears” from our eyes (Revelation 7:17).

It has been said that there are two kinds of funerals:  those without hope and those with hope. This was a funeral with hope. This hope can be yours

in the face of any fear or sorrow.  You can know that you will go immediately to God’s Heaven when you leave this world.  And your loved ones can have this hope, too.

You wonder how we found this assurance?  We found it in the Person of Jesus Christ.  He is the only One who can give you the assurance that you will go to Heaven and meet your loved one again.  He said of Himself, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life” (John 3:36) and, “In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2,3).

Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven.   Acts 4:12 says, “Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”  Christ 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 all our sins when He was nailed to the cross.  I Peter 2:24 says that He “bare our sins in His own body on the tree,” and it says again in I 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…”

Why did He do this?  Because all of us are sinners.  According to Romans 3:23, “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” and Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death.”

God loves you.  He wants you in Heaven.
