It really does come down to this. The minute we are born, we begin to die. When we are young we become aware, at least on some level, of what death means, but we are able to deal with the reality of death by also believing it won’t happen to us. This is why young teenage undeveloped minds can do such death defying and crazy things, because they believe they are invincible. This belief, nonetheless, does not change the fact that death is coming. We don’t know where, or when, or how, but we can absolutely, and unequivocally rest assured, death is coming, and not just from COVID-19.
This is where it gets sticky. There are those who never are able to get over their fear of death. I’m not talking about just unreligious people with no faith, or no belief in eternal life. There are those I’ve known in the past who truly led their whole lives based on feelings, specifically the fear of death. They lived in fear, so their actions and speech and beliefs were based in their “feelings” of fear. Even now I struggle with how to help them, it’s rather sad to watch. And, they don’t seem to want to listen to the Bible’s instruction: “Do not fear.”
One last observation.
I believe God is in control.
I believe God wants us to live by faith in reality of His being in control.
I believe we will not die before God says it is our “time” to die, because He is in control.
I believe the Bible instructs us to not live by feelings (fear) but faith.
Here is a video that might help. You might want to watch it today. The people who want you to continue to live in fear, will surely take it off of facebook, just like they took it off Youtube. They want you to be afraid. Don’t be.
