Donna's obituary described her perfectly. A beautiful woman who lit up the room with her contagious smile and enthusiasm for life, her husband, children, grandchildren and all her family and many friends. She was always planning the next family party, the next trip, or event with joy and happiness, and of course that big smile that went everywhere she went. She will be missed by so many and most of all by the family that loved her as much as she loved each of them. My heart goes out to all of you.

I hope you find comfort in this.Hope for the Dead‚ÄîThe ResurrectionDo you believe in the Bible‚Äôs promise of a resurrection here on earth? (Acts 24:15; Ps 37:11,29) The prospect of being reunited with our loved ones who have died is appealing, to say the least. But is it realistic to nourish such a hope? To help answer that, we do well to consider the example of the apostles of Jesus Christ.The apostles firmly believed in the resurrection of the dead. Why? For at least two reasons. First, their hope was primarily based on this fact: Jesus himself had been raised from the dead. The apostles‚Äîand ‚Äúmore than 500 brothers at one time‚Äù‚Äîsaw the resurrected Jesus. (1 Corinthians 15:6) Additionally, Jesus‚Äô resurrection was widely attested to and accepted, as the four Gospels show.‚ÄîMatthew 27:62‚Äì28:20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-53; John 20:1‚Äì21:25.Second, the apostles had witnessed Jesus carry out at least three resurrections‚Äîfirst at Nain, then at Capernaum, and finally at Bethany. (Luke 7:11-17; 8:49-56; John 11:1-44) The last of those resurrections, described earlier in this issue, involved a family especially close to Jesus. Let us look further at what happened.‚ÄúI AM THE RESURRECTION‚Äù‚ÄúYour brother will rise.‚Äù Jesus spoke those words to Martha, whose brother, Lazarus, had been dead for four days. Martha did not at first understand the meaning of Jesus‚Äô words. ‚ÄúI know he will rise,‚Äù she responded, but she thought that it would be at some time in the future. Imagine her surprise when after hearing Jesus say, ‚ÄúI am the resurrection and the life,‚Äù she saw Jesus raise her brother from the dead!‚ÄîJohn 11:23-25.Where was Lazarus during the four days after his death? Lazarus said nothing to suggest that he had been alive somewhere else during those four days. No, Lazarus did not have an immortal soul that had gone to heaven. By resurrecting Lazarus, Jesus did not bring him back down to earth, dragging him away from enjoying heavenly bliss in a place near to God. So where was Lazarus during those four days? He was, in fact, asleep in the grave.‚ÄîEcclesiastes 9:5, 10.Jesus compared death to a sleep from which one is awakened by resurrection. The account reads: ‚Äú‚ÄòLazarus our friend has fallen asleep, but I am traveling there to awaken him.‚Äô The disciples then said to him: ‚ÄòLord, if he is sleeping, he will get well.‚Äô Jesus, however, had spoken about his death. But they imagined he was speaking about taking rest in sleep. Then Jesus said to them plainly: ‚ÄòLazarus has died.‚Äô‚Äù (John 11:11-14) By resurrecting Lazarus, Jesus gave him back his life and reunited him with his family. What a marvelous gift Jesus gave to that family!The resurrections Jesus performed when on earth were a foregleam of what he will do in the future as King of God‚Äôs Kingdom.(Matthew 6:9,10) During his rule over the earth, the heavenly Jesus will bring back to life those humans who are asleep in mankind‚Äôs common grave to live here on earth forever.(Acts 24:15; Ps 37:11,29) That is why he said: ‚ÄúI am the resurrection.‚Äù Think of the happiness you will feel when you see your loved ones again! Think, too, of the joy that resurrected ones will experience!‚ÄîLuke 8:56.Think of the happiness you will feel when you see your loved ones again!Want more comfort here's my email [email protected] and my text 919-561-8472.
