Safe in the Arms of God (Dans les bras de Dieu)
How to keep hope after losing your child
The death of a child is the most devastating experience a parent can have. It is also a complicated experience for his friends and relatives who are Christians. However, God does not leave you in mourning. In this book, John MacArthur highlights the multiple biblical passages alluding to God's unwavering love for children and his assurance of their eternal security. Using many real-life examples, this renowned teacher unveils a biblical perspective on troubling questions such as:
- Why did our child have to die?
- Shall we meet again our child someday?
- How to overcome such overwhelming sadness?
- What is the age to be held accountable?
- Do babies pay for the sins of their parents?
- Can very young children and even unborn children experience salvation?
Throughout this book, Pastor MacArthur convincingly states the following expectation: The Father derives great joy from his younger children and shows compassion for them. On this subject, he writes: “Every conceived child is a person whom God created, whom God loves and to whom God has given a purpose and a destiny. Therefore, God surrounds each child with his love, from the first moment of life until the last.
"In the arms of God reveals that heaven's assurance for the child you love rests on much more than mere sentimentality; it is revealed in the Word of God and reflects the very heart of God. »
