The last thing a child of God has to fear is death! Death to a christian means to be in the presence of their Savior. Oh the Glory of that moment absent from the body, present with the Lord, not even but a second of closing your eyes and then to open them and see the Holy one that you have served. The joy will be indescribable! All the pain and suffering you endured will be wiped from your mind.
"The sound of weeping and crying will be heard no more!" Isaiah 65:19
The joy we will experience when we look into His face and see the love He feels for us, a love no greater.
"And they shall be Mine, says the Lord Almighty, in that day when I make up My jewels." Malachi 3:17
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him." 1 Corinthians 2:9
To meditate on how much He loves His own to remember how He suffered so much for us by laying down His life. ..No greater love then to lay down your life.
He is preparing it for us brethren! Home Sweet Home Awaits us!!
