Question and Answer

I believe that there is life after death. So are we going to meet our loved ones again?
For those who know the Lord, the answer is absolutely yes. The apostle Paul told his converts in Thessalonica that the hope of seeing them in glory sustained him. “For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you? Indeed, you are our glory and joy” (1 Thess. 2:19–20). See Hebrews 12:22–24 for one the Bible’s most encouraging texts about the city of God and its citizens.
