Lesson 15 

Grief

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds  up their wounds."
(Psalm 147:3)

 

Grief: deep mental suffering, as that arisingfrom bereavement

Grief is a natural human emotion that is experienced when a sig­nificant loss occurs-especially the loss of a loved one.  Grief is not necessarily an indication of a lack of faith, but can be an expres­sion of the depth of love we had for someone.

Synopsis

Being a Christian does not rescue us from the pain of loss.  Jesus Himself was familiar with grief, and wept when His friend Lazarus died because of His great love for him.1

The Bible clearly "makes room" for grief in the hearts of man; there is a time to grieve and a time to mourn.2  The disciples of Jesus experienced grief when He told them He was going to die,3,4  they also mourned immediately after His death on the cross.5  However, Jesus also told His disciples that their grief would eventually turn to joy when He returned to be with them.6,7  

As Christians, we will all experience grief when our loved ones die;  but we are to maintain a sense of hope, even in the midst of our grief and sorrow.8  Remember, our grief in this world is only temporary,9 it will not extend into eternity.10,11   

If you know someone who is grieving or mourning, reach out to him or her in Christian love.19,20  As Christians, we are to carry each other's burdens.21   

Our hope comes from the fact that Jesus Christ defeated death.12,13 Nothing will ever replace the loss of our loved ones on this earth, but nothing will ever surpass our reunion with them in heaven as we spend eternity with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.14   

If you are grieving and brokenhearted, keep turning to God.15 Let God help wipe away your tears and heal your wounds.16,17 He promises He will be close to the brokenhearted and save those who are crushed in spirit.18

If you know someone who is grieving or mourning, reach out to him or her in Christian love.19,20 As Christians, we are to carry each other's burdens.21


Scriptures:

Where have you laid him?" he asked.  "Come and see, Lord," they replied.  Jesus wept.  Then the Jews said,

"See how he loved him!"

(John 11:34-36)1

 

There is a time for everything, and a season for every

activity under heaven:  a time to be born and a time

 to die...a time to weep and a time to laugh...

a time to mourn and a time to dance...

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-2,4)2

 

"The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men.  They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised to life."  And the disciples were filled with grief.

Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

you will fulfill the law of Christ.

(Galatians 6:2)21
