Will We Know Each Other in Heaven
Will we know our loved ones in heaven?
Who of us hasn’t wept at the graveside of a loved one, or mourned their loss with so many questions unanswered?
Will we know our loved ones in heaven? Will we see their face again?
Death is sorrowful with its separation, it’s hard for those that we leave behind. Those who love much often grieve deeply, feeling the heartache of their empty chair. Yet, we sorrow for those who fall asleep in Jesus, but not as those who have no hope.
The Scriptures are woven with the comfort that not only will we know our loved ones in heaven, but we will be together with them also.
The familiar sound of their voice will call out your name
Although we grieve the loss of our loved ones, we’ll have eternity to be with those in the Lord. The familiar sound of their voice will call out your name. So shall we ever be with the Lord.
What about our loved ones who may have died without Jesus? Will you see their face again? Who knows that they haven’t trusted Jesus in their last moments?
We may never know this side of heaven.
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” ~ Romans 8:18
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
