Who Have No Hope…

I Thes. 4:13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.

It is a sad day as we learned this morning that our dear brother in the Lord, Leonard Fairbanks passed away about 4:00 am this morning. Leonard was such a great blessing and friend to me over the years he has been part of FOL that we will greatly miss his presence. His death reminds me of the verse we have chosen for today. Though Leonard will be greatly missed our sorrow is filled with hope! We know that he is now in the presence of his Saviour.

We do not sorrow as those who have no hope. Leonard has passed from us but his faith has secured his place in eternity. His death was not a dash into the unknown, but a step into his heavenly home. Our sorrow gives way to celebration because we know he has crossed into a place promised by Jesus Himself.. ".In My Father’s house are many mansions;if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also." (John 14:2-3)

We have hope in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
