Life is full of ‘Hello’s and Goodbyes’! Catching up with family and friends you haven’t seen for ages is a sweet delight but ‘parting is such sweet sorrow’. One of the greatest things about belonging to God’s family is that this life is not the end. Whether we are parted by distance ….. or by death ….. we will one day meet again. And then there will be no more parting! It’s hard to imagine what eternity will be like but the Bible tells us we will be in God’s presence ….. and there will be no more tearful goodbyes!
“Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
