Jesus became one with us in death that we might become one with Him in resurrection. He knows the fear that death brings. The death that we all know that we will encounter one day casts its long shadow back into our present reality. Even when death is not near, the fear of it is never very far away. For this reason, Jesus sends us to proclaim the message of His victory over death. His will is that no one be afraid of death for He has transformed it from a doorway to oblivion into a doorway to heaven. (Everyone Is Going to Heaven .)
Therefore, do not fear death…for yourself, or for anyone else. Death is graduation day! We move from earth to heaven. (Those who graduate with honors are those who live in moral excellence, imitating Jesus with their attitudes and motivations.)
Replace your fear of death with faith in God. In this relationship with God you will be liberated from the slavery to fear so that you can live in the love of God (and win honors from Him in this life and the next).
