Death is something not everybody wants to talk about, but all those same people, more or less, is interested in it. Nobody knows what takes place after death and that is one of the reasons what makes it so terrifying. A common trait of human beings is the fear of the unknown. Really, what is there beyond life on Earth? Is there truly is another life after death? Or is it just void and nothing else?
Sometimes you simply can't help but fear death. That much is understandable. The Lord understands that. But we all have to face it sooner or later, and so to conquer our fear of it, we should look to the encouraging Scriptures for spiritual guidance.
Take note of this encouraging Bible verse:
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"—but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:9-10)."
Most of us Christians, even the most dedicated ones, they all have a fear of death or dying. They are afraid of the idea of suffering before death, or else they fear the suffering of the people and loved ones they leave behind. Christians are still human beings, after all.
It is recommended that you should talk to your family and friends about dealing with your fear of death. Or you may see a specialist and have him comfort you, a psychiatrist. But even so, the best way to get over your issues with death or dying is still to read the Scriptures. The Scriptures can help you get over your fear of death.
Fact is, you should look up to the Son of God, Jesus Christ, as inspiration for you to overcome your fear. Jesus was brought to us as a man. He grew up knowing this, that he was an instrument in the Lord's plan to save mankind. He lived life as a humble carpenter, who spread the word of the Lord to the people, and then apprehended, and eventually died on the cross.
This was a man who knew what was coming to him. Yet he accepted it and even asked the Lord to forgive. The Son of God is the one true inspiration when it comes to dealing with the fear of death.
"If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection (Romans 6:5)."
Don't fear death. It comes to the worst and best of us, and according to the Lord, we have nothing to fear.
