Thought from Rehoboth Baptist Church, Horsham

Is there anybody there? This question at the head of an advertisement last week got me thinking.

The advert suggested that there is, and that they – departed loved ones – may be contacted.

The Bible makes clear that there certainly is life after death and that there is Someone there who is able to comfort and encourage us and ensure eternal spiritual life for all who believe in Him.

It’s Jesus Christ, God’s Son, who loved us and gave himself for us who is able to forgive us our sins and be a true friend for this life and beyond – and, to coin a phrase, He is only a prayer away. We fail, I fail, our loved ones can fail us. Jesus will never fail us – and he’s there now for you and me.
