We’re headed out of town on Wednesday to participate in The Elisha Foundation’s winter retreat in Oregon. The next few days will include some gems of comfort I’ve found, like this quote from Pastor John answering the question, “how can I comfort my brother whose daughter has cancer?”
“Our final comfort is that we are united to Jesus forever. Some die when they’re eight, some at eighteen, and some at eighty. But the comfort remains the same. Christ died for our sins. He rose again. He imparts to us everything we need to come to him and enjoy him forever.
Additionally, he will make up for every loss. The judge of all the earth will do right (Genesis 18:25), and he will reward us for every loss we’ve endured.”
