1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died. 

Insight: As Christ followers we are blessed to know that when loved ones who have a relationship with Jesus die we will see them again in heaven. This is such a blessing, although we still mourn we can focus more on celebrating their life than their loss of life here on earth.

Prayer: Lord, we thank you for the time we have with our loved ones here on earth. Help me to not take it for granted.
