Thoughts on Death

Posted by Angie on January 17th, 2011

Hi.   This is Angie.  I’m breaking my I’m-through-with-this-blog silence to post something I’m thinking about today.

As many of you know, our dear friend, Greg Hewlett went to Heaven to live forever this morning.  While we are really sad about him leaving us like this, we are really happy for him, as he has been healed of cancer forever.  Thanks be to God!

Anyway, as I have been pondering his earthly departure at age 42, I am reminded of the Heidelberg Catechism, Question #1 (our family just started memorizing this a week ago, fittingly).  It says:

“Q:  What is your only comfort, in life and in death?

A:  That I am not my own,
but belong—
body and soul,
in life and in death—
to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.

He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,
and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.
He also watches over me in such a way
that not a hair can fall from my head
without the will of my Father in heaven:
in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.

Because I belong to him,
Christ, by his Holy Spirit,
assures me of eternal life
and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready
from now on to live for him.”

I’m confident that Greg is in Heaven today, getting together with Jesus and Paul and all those other delightful saints, knowing and being known by His Savior, face-to-face.  All things have worked together for his salvation.  He is safely home now.
