Lamento mucho su pérdida. Perder a un ser querido es una experiencia muy dolorosa. Por ello es que quiero compartir con usted la bonita esperanza que ofrece la Biblia. Primero, nos dice que los muertos no estan sufriendo. Dice que estan dormidos en la muerte (1 Tesalonicenses 4:14). Por lo tanto, Dios los despertara al resucitarlos. Jesucristo dijo: “Yo soy la resurrección y la vida. El que ejerce fe en mí, aunque muera, llegará a vivir" (Juan 11:25). El nos promete que "va haber una resurrección" de todos que se encuentran en las tumbas conmemorativas (Juan 5:28, 29).
