Read: Today Pastor Brian will be speaking about how God guides believers in this world. This message will help apply the two messages from Genesis 24. Re-read Genesis 24 in preparation for today’s message.
Remember that our passage from Hebrews 2:14-18 said that people were held like slaves all of their lives by the fear of death (v. 15). Genesis 24:67 says that Isaac “was comforted after his mother’s death” by his marriage to Rebekah. Why is death so traumatic for the people who keep on living after their loved ones die?
In addition to the love of others (like Rebekah’s love for Isaac), what are some other ways God has provided to comfort people when someone they love dies?
