Jesus Came to Comfort

Yesterday we had the opportunity to comfort a widow whose husband went home to be with the Lord just before Christmas last year. They had been married for over 60 years. The Holidays can be especially painful for those who are left behind.
If you have friends who have lost a loved one, make a special effort to call them and encourage them during the holidays. Let them talk about the person they lost if they want to, it brings comfort to be able to talk to someone.
Remind them that Jesus is the one who can bring solace to their heart.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
