—1 Corinthians 15:12-19
by: Paula Davis.
One of the greatest confidences we have as Christians is resurrection from the dead. With this confidence, we have hope that earthly death is not final but is a path to even greater and everlasting life with our Savior. While this does not take away the sadness associated with the earthly death of someone we love, it does provide a deep peace that helps us go on without them. This confidence and peace can be a great way to share our hope in Christ. When people notice that our grief is different from theirs and want to know why and how they can experience it too, we can share the reason for our hope.'
