This past week, Rebecca and I flew down to Dallas to attend the funeral of her sister-in-law who had suffered with various ailments for 20 years. She leaves behind her husband, three children, and several grandchildren. Every time I attend a funeral I’m reminded that this is where our Christian faith comes most clearly into focus: we are convinced that all who die are fully conscious in the afterlife, and those who are believers are with the Lord and their bodies await the resurrection. We shall someday join them, and “forever we shall be with the Lord.” Any religion that does not have a satisfying answer to the problem of death is not worth believing. Thankfully, our faith is in Jesus who holds “the key to death and Hades.” Incredible, but true.
All for the King,
