At present, we know salvation and adoption in our souls only. At the resurrection, we will know them fully, in body and soul. Consequently, we should have no fear of death, but rather welcome it as the entrance into heavenly joys.

At the resurrection we look forward to three more blessings: we will be raised up in new glorious bodies, we will be acquitted at the Judgment, and perfectly and eternally blessed for all eternity. Because of these blessings we should not fear death, we should not fear the Judgment, and we should not seek our blessings and happiness so much in this life as in the next.
