But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 NKJV)
Jesus, Because of Your death and resurrection, all who believe in You can have hope! We can trust in the promise of eternity with You because You covered our sins through Your sacrifice. And we can look forward to a reunion with the loved ones who have joined You before us. Remind us of this truth — we do not grieve as the world grieves because we have our hope in You. In Your Name, Amen.
