Condolence Messages

  1. To the family of Carol, you have my condolences in your loss. Death is never easy to accept and God warned that sin & death would enter into the world as a consequence for Adam’s disobedience (Genesis 2:16, 17; Romans 5:12). However, because of his undeserved loving kindness, he allowed his son Jesus to die to reverse the effects of sin. May you have faith in his promise of the resurrection of the dead (Acts 24:15).
