Today Vickie Mears brought a message on God’s love for the Grieving. Vickie works in Community Education with Crossroads Hospice.
Vickie brought these examples of Loss/Grief in the Scripture:
- Hannah – infertility, public shame in that era
- Job – multiple losses of monumental proportions.
- Paul regarding his friend Epaphrodituus: Indeed he was ill, near to death. But God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. (Philippians 2:27)
- Jesus mourned over Lazarus in John 11:35 and over Jerusalem in Matthew 23:37-39.
