Death, to the believer!
"I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far!" Philippians 1:23
Death, to the believer, is but passing out of a world of sorrow and of sin — and entering upon a world of indescribable glory!
If we lived more in anticipation of the happiness that waits us — earth would have less hold on our hearts' best affections.
"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ — set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above — not on earthly things!" Colossians 3:1-2
