Christ has Lordship over all of life, even grief. The gospel informs all we do, including our grieving.

When dealing with the loss of a fellow believer, it is a privilege to grieve in a distinctly Christian way—to grieve in one way instead of being left to grieve in another way.

"No man knows when his hour will come men are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them." Ecc. Solomon wrote these words around B.C., nearly a millennium before the birth of Christ.
