Overcome the fear of death

As Christians, we like to think of ourselves as unafraid of death but in reality, even the most devout believer has occasions when the fears of death overcomes them. As human beings created by God has a strong impulse to avoid death. Death was not in God’s original plan when we were created. Our purpose was to fellowship with God because we wanted to and not because we had to. We were made to be whole. A oneness with our creator living in paradise in communion with Him. After Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate of the fruit, death was a necessary response to the admittance of sin into the world. It is a grace that we die. If we didn’t, we would have to live in a sinful world for all eternity.
