We don't like dealing with death. And it's easier for us to push it aside when we can say of the one who's died "she lived a full life."

But you can't say that about my friend @Bre_payton. She was 26. She had so much more to do, so many good works to give God and her neighbor.
Bre did not live a full life. Her life was cut painfully short. And there is no comfort to be found in the kind of hackneyed phrases that are tossed around at the funerals of nonagenarians.

Death is brutal. It is merciless. It is evil.
But because of Jesus and His resurrection, death has no power over those who belong to Christ through faith, as Bre did. It is no longer a tool of the devil to fill our hearts with despair. It is, rather, a tool of Christ who has used it to bring Bre to His side.
We don't know why He chose to do this now. But we do know what comes next. Bre has now come out of the Great Tribulation, washed her robe in the blood of the Lamb, and made it white in His blood. Now, Christ has dried every tear from her eye.

He will dry ours too.
Because God did not create Bre to die, we weep. But because of Christ and His promise of eternal life, we weep with Easter in our tears.

Christ is risen. One day my friend will be too.
