No human experience is more painful than losing someone you loved. Whether the cause was an accident or a terminal illness, death is seen as a final farewell which family and friends dread the most. In fact, even among the elderly, talking about death seems a taboo topic that no one dares to speak of.

However, if we read the Bible, death is not the end, but simply a door leading to the next. When one has trusted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior, death may be painful, but it is a warm welcome into God’s family in heaven. As far as God and the Bible are concerned, it is not a final farewell, but a temporary separation because one day, all the saints will meet once again and be together forever.
