The world is always attempting to delay the end of things. Death can be an incredibly frightening prospect. The end of a job, the end of a marriage, the end of anything has to be dealt with.
A believer, on the other hand, has the joy of knowing that the end of something can lead to a new beginning. When we surrender to Jesus, the end of our old life opens up an amazing life of redemption for us. The end of our life on earth is the beginning of an eternity of joy. The world fears the end. Believers can embrace it as the door that leads to everlasting life in the presence of the living God!
