One of the greatest fears we have is the fear of death. Maybe when we are younger we don’t think about it as much, but all of us some level of fear because it is the great final unknown. The fear of death can keep us from really living. The fear of death can rob us of the life God wants us to experience now. In Jesus, the power and fear of death have been defeated by the one who faced death without fear and rose from the dead. We want to go to heaven. We want eternal life without pain and suffering. But the path to that place is through death and all must pass that way, including Jesus. He has gone before us and will show us the way.
