According to the Bible, death is not normal or natural. Regardless, it hangs over us all as a constant threat. But, the believer in Jesus Christ can face death with a confident hope. We have 1) the confidence that our sins are forgiven, 2) the confidence that absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, 3) the confidence that for believers death is not a final separation, but a reunion awaits, 4) the confidence of resurrection, and 5) the confidence of a home.
