Most people shy away from thinking about their death, much less talking about it. It puts fear in the minds of many and dread in their hearts. In Philippians 1:21 Paul wrote, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” You heard that right! Paul said that, for a Christian, death is profitable. When a Christian dies he has much to gain. He gains a better body – one no longer subject to sickness, death and decay. A better home – a home with God and all His people. A better environment – away from the sin and sorrow we so often experience in this world. No wonder Paul wrote that to depart this world and be with Christ is far better!
