Fear of Dying
What is it that Christians fear most about the process and results of dying? Here are six common fears and a very brief biblical remedy for each of them.
1. FEAR OF DYING A PAINFUL DEATH (THE PROCESS OF DEATH)
“I’m not so much afraid of dying as I am of the final leg of the journey.”
God promises never to leave or forsake us, not to tempt us beyond what we are able to handle by His grace, and to provide the grace we need to endure the trials and temptations He allows to come our way. This does not mean that death isn’t hard or difficult, but God promises in 1 Corinthians 10:13 that as Christians, our temptations (and the trials associated with them) are and will be limited by God both in scope and duration.
