You can listen to this message from Genesis 23 on the Media page, but please allow me to give you the four main points of the sermon. They come from the chapter as Sarah, Abraham’s wife dies.
1.The Death of a Loved One Reminds Us that We Never Fulfill All Our Desires or See All of His Promises (vs.1-2a)
2. The Death of a Loved One Causes Sever Pain & Grief, When the Relationship has been Properly Developed. (v.2b)
3. The Death of a Loved One Demands that You Move Ahead Making Provisions & Preparations with a Greater Amount of Trust & Dedication. (vs.3-16)
4. The Death of a Loved One Reminds us to Value the Future Above the Temporal (vs.17-20)
The greatest things you own here on this earth are the relationships you have. It is of great importance to build and develop the God-given relationships, while you have time. The greatest and most important urgency is to be certain that the ones you love and relate to, are going to have this relationship with you forever! It is important to walk hand in hand here on this earth, but of much greater importance to walk hand in hand throughout all eternity in heaven!
