We consider why, if we are believers, death is our friend and not our enemy, as it brings us to heaven, where Jesus is.

If we walk with the Lord in holiness from the heart, then: 

  • First, when we die we will enter into heaven, and 
  • Second, and even more glorious, we will enter into our Lord’s presence.

Paul tells us this is so much better than anything we have or can have here on earth. We are all urged to seek the Lord that we might hunger and thirst for His presence here on earth, but above all, in the glory of heaven.
