No one who has died is dead. Sure, they may be dead to this world and to us, but because of Jesus Christ they live in heaven now and forever.
Everyone who has died leaves this world but they enter a heavenly existence which is not subject to death.
Therefore, it is unwarranted and impractical for us to grieve as if we are not going to see our loved ones again. We may grieve as those who will be parted for a while – but that’s all. The dead are not dead and, for life’s sake, we must keep reminding ourselves of that fact. To help, see Everyone Is Going to Heaven.
Many people today believe that there is no God and that there is no life after death. Even these people go to heaven when they die. Yes, this will surprise them…but happily so. Nonetheless, they may regret that they did not believe while they were on earth. Don’t be like them! Enjoy this life morally by living for God, knowing that this is not all there is!
