Consolation at the Death of Friends-1

The apostle Paul wrote to the Philippians: “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21). In today’s meditation, Johann Gerhard expands on what St. Paul said and leads us to find consolation at the death of loved ones or friends.

This meditation, and the following meditations in this series, is dedicated in loving memory to my father, Larry Asburry, who was called to his eternal rest on November 28, 2017.
