Some avoid talking about death for different reasons. Kim and I have had some conversations about what would happen if one of us were to go home with Jesus. If I was the first to go, she only has one instruction for my funeral…just one. If you were to ask her, she could tell you easily. It is that one song be played, preferably by the loudest southern rock/gospel band you can find with a guy or girl that has a very cool gravely voice that can bring down the house 🙂
It’s the song Ain’t No Grave. It is old school, but son, I hear that song and good God Almighty!! I want to preach!!!! It’s like having church on my iTunes…not just church…CHURCH!!
For the believer, we’re just going home. Man, can you just imagine what that will be like? Unreal. To see His face..
Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
