Condolences

  • In the scripture Job 14:14, Job asked the question, “if a man dies, can he live again?…” He answers that question in verse 15, “ You(Jehovah) will call and I will answer you” Job had a confidence in the resurrection hope and we can too (John 5:28,29). Jesus is the resurrection and the life. Jesus brings our dear loved ones back from the grave. Please allow the resurrection hope to comfort you.

  • Although I do not know you personally, I would like to express my condolences to your family. It is painful to loose a loved one in death. A Bible passage that helped me when my mother passed was Isaiah 25:8 “ He will swallow up death forever….” Wishing you peace, comfort and hope.
