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. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
I chose this verse because I wanted to remind all of us that as Christians there’s hope. There’s life after death and that life eternal for those who love God. Sadness is a natural reaction to death, but as Christians we don’t need to grieve over the death of other Christians. Instead rejoice that they are with God in heaven!
