My nephew was only three months old when he died recently. Is he an angel now, like some people say? I hope so, because that would really comfort us. It's been very hard.


My heart goes out to you and your family; almost nothing is more devastating than losing a child, no matter their age. And I want to assure you that God also knows what you’re going through, and He wants to surround you with His love.

No, this little one has not become an angel—because he has become something even greater! Although he was only an infant when he died, the Bible assures us that he is now like Jesus Christ—and Christ is greater than the angels. And this is true for everyone who belonged to Christ and was part of His family on earth, and has now entered Heaven. The Bible says, “We shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is” (1 John 3:2).

I know you and your family deeply miss this child; death is our final enemy, and only at the end of the present age will Christ’s victory over death be complete. But Heaven is far greater than anything we can fully imagine; if we could glimpse Heaven for only one second, we’d never want our loved ones to leave its glory and return to this sin-filled earth.

Is Heaven your destination? Do you know for certain that when you die you too will share in Heaven’s glory? Only one thing keeps us out of Heaven, and that is our sin. But by His death and resurrection Christ opened Heaven’s door for us. If you have never done so, turn to Christ and put your faith and trust in Him alone for your salvation.

Are you sure you’re going to Heaven?
