I hate doing funerals for people who are not Christians – because I know too much about how grace and judgment work, and I know that none of us want to face the judgement of God outside of the grace of God. I am a Christian for a reason. I don’t really know what to say to people without Christ when their world is coming to an end. In the Gospel of Matthew, we come across another story which, like last week has to do with people in personally crushing situations, and the hope Jesus brings.
Matthew 9:24 , 24 he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him.
