In today’s meditation, Johann Gerhard continues giving us consolation at the death of loved ones and friends. Gerhard earlier spoke of our lost ones getting out of the stormy seas of this fallen world and into the safe harbor of eternal life with Jesus Christ. Today, Gerhard paints a beautiful picture of our blessed hope, that is, being reunited with our loved ones and friends in Christ.
This meditation, and the other 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.
