Short article on how Christians should face the death of a loved one. Christians are not immune to grief and loss but share a special bond with Christ in suffering. Christ alleviates our crosses by helping us carry them because he experienced suffering himself. Through this unique bond, the Christian can offer all loss and pain to Christ who in turn can offer it to the Father. Grief has the potential to be a transforming event in a Christian’s life like all suffering. It can retain spiritual value when tied to Jesus Christ.
The article, “How Should Christians Approach the Death of a Loved One?” by Megan Bailey investigates closer how Christians deal with the death of a loved one. The article states,
The pain of a loved one is something we all must face at some point in our lives.

As Christians, we can find hope in God and use Him as a source of comfort.
