Question? Should we put flowers on graves?
I believe that putting flowers on the graves of Family and Friends is “A sign of Respect” For the living.
People express Grief and mourn in different ways, I personally DO NOT put flowers on any graves for two reasons.
– #1 The person themselves ARE NOT there it is just their body that is left.
If that person is saved then they are in heaven “Walking on the Streets of Gold that are transparent as Glass” ENJOYING all the Glories of Heaven.
Revelation 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
and those that are in Hell that is the last thing that they are worried about.
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
– #2 The travel distance involved.
There is NOTHING WRONG in “Showing Respect” for a Loved one, or a Friend that has passed on IN FACT it is Honorable to keep them in Remembrance as long that you remember that it is done “For the Living NOT for the dead”.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
