Guest Book

Jesus focused his attention on the grieving mother, who was likely walking near the bier that carried the body of her dead son. The account says: “When the Lord caught sight of her, he was moved with pity for her, and he said to her: ‘Stop weeping.’” With a gesture of authority, he “touched the bier” and brought the crowd to a stop. Then with the voice of someone who had been given power over death, he said: “‘Young man, I say to you, Get up!’ And the dead man sat up and started to speak, and he gave him to his mother.” Does your heart long to experience such a joy—to be reunited with a dead loved one? Be assured that Jehovah God feels for you. Jesus’ empathy for that grieving widow reflected Jehovah God’s own compassion, for Jesus perfectly mirrored his Father’s personality. (John 14:9) The Bible teaches us that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. (Job 14:14, 15) His Word, the Bible, gives us a wonderful hope, namely, the prospect of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28, 29) In the Bible, Jehovah God has given us a record of past resurrections in order to demonstrate that he is not only the Giver of life but also the Restorer of it Why not learn more about the Restorer of life and how you can make that hope your own?
