Loved Ones of Josephine Young: We take great pleasure in reminding you that Jesus taught his followers to pray for God's Kingdom to come and his will to be done on earth. (Matthew 6:9-10). Find comfort in knowing what this Kingdom will do in the future for those who love God with their whole heart, soul, and mind. (Matthew 22:37-39). When God's Kingdom rules the earth, nobody will get sick or die and all humans will honor God's name. (Revelation 22:1-3). In fact, Jesus offers everlasting life on God's restored paradise earth to all who exercise faith in him, God's only-begotten Son. (Luke 23:43; John 3:16) Our heartfelt sympathy for your loss!
