By Rev. Mark H. Creech
Are you afraid of dying? You don’t have to be in a life-threating situation to be afraid of death. Most people whenever they contemplate dying are afraid of it. It’s the subject we like to avoid talking about.
But fear of death need not plague a person of faith. The moment a person trust God through Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, an eternal relationship with God begins. The Scriptures say, “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, in order that you may know that you have eternal life” (I John 5:11-13).
