Have you ever been with someone when he or she died? It is an extremely (I am struggling here to find the right word) compelling event.
Why are we so fascinated with death? It is the great unknown. We are sometimes scared of it, and we don’t talk about it much.
But we are all destined to face it.
I’m in awe of how God talks about death in the Bible as no big deal. When I searched the Bible for the word “died,” it occurs 248 times in the NIV.
“And he died.” No big deal!
So, it should be with us!
Even Jesus said Lazarus was only “asleep” although he was dead.
The bottom line is if we are ready heart and especially soul, it is no big deal.
We are going home!
