The Bible says we should comfort one another with these words. I pray they not only bring comfort, but cause our grateful hearts to rejoice this Thanksgiving.
“For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.” 1 Th. 5:9-10
“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life…” Jo. 3:36
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” 1 Th. 4:16-17
