When I was a kid, I used to think of how would I die and how would I look inside the coffin. I don´t wanna die feeling the pain, or seeing the wounds and bloof in my body. I just wanna die peaceful but will that happen? Will my friends and family be crying? Where would I go after death, hell or heaven?
Those are random questions in my mind everytime I am thinking about death. But after having a deep relationship with God, my perspective changed. It became brighter about what will happen after death. I felt so much peace instead of fear. And assurance instead of confussion.
¨For God so loved the world, he gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have an eternal life¨
He is great to always forgive and forget our sins. We just need to confess our sins, ask for forgiveness and repent. He will surely forgive us and forget our sins. He is not like us who forgive but never forget the sins of others. We should learn and live the way Jesus Christ live.
After learning and understanding those things, my perspective about death had changed. God loves us and it his by His grace that we will be saved. It is not about our good doings while we are in this world. So now, I am not afraid to die as long as I know His promise, that I live my life the way he wants to and follow His rules. I am human and I am not perfect. But I know that my God loves me, I need to repent and come to Him and I am sure that He will forgive me.
After death, I know he will give me what He promised. An eternal life in heaven, with Him. There will be no more pain, no more sadness. We don´t need to suffer anymore. We will always sing of praise for His goodness that he showed to us.
Here I end this blog. These are few of His promises to us, few of things that we need to know. I hope I can say and share more but I am sure God will prove those in your life. I am praying for you to have a deep relationship with God. And death is not something we should be afraid of, for we know that after death, it is a new beginning. A beginning of life full of love, joy and peace in His kingdom.
