Many fear…many deny…many consider death as happening to someone else. In reality, death is part of everyone’s life. We came from dust…we return to dust.
There is a part of us that never dies. Within this God-created body is the essence of each one of us…the soul, which is carried for a time in an earthly body.
Though our body dies and returns to the earth, our soul lives on. Beyond this life, death is only the beginning for the body is temporal and the soul is eternal.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
