Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you. – John 16:22 NKJV
Jesus knew that His disciples would grieve after he died, but He also knew that He would be resurrected.
It is not a common thing for a man to die and come back to life. The Lord is a God of miracles, and we don’t always understand how they take place scientifically, only that they are possible. With God, nothing is impossible.
In this life we will lose loved ones and experience grief, but even though that grief really never goes away, as it only fades and comes back in waves, in the second coming everything will be restored. Holidays can sometimes be difficult when we have lost a loved one, because we remember both the joy of having them there but the sorrow of not having them with us at the present moment. We will see our loved ones again, including Jesus. That will be a joyful day. Amen.
