The Bible says that each one of us will face death. It's inevitable. But as Christ-followers know, death is just the stepping-over into eternal union with God, if we so choose. John 3:16 has become rote for many people, but its message continues to shake life's foundation: God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that anyone who chooses to believe in Him would not perish but would have eternal life. You can have it, you can know it, you can be assured of it, and you can be completely confident in it.
I wonder if you know anyone who needs that level of assurance today. If so, then find a way to give it to them!
