How do Christians feel about death?

In the Bible, the apostle Paul said the only reason for his life was to bring honour and praise to Christ. To love and serve Christ is life. For Paul himself (as for all Christians) death will mean being ‘at home with the Lord’ in heaven.

“For me to live is Christ and to die will be gain.”

Philippians 1:21

Not even death can separate Christians from the love of Jesus:

“I am sure that not death, or life, or angels, or rulers, or things that now are, or things to come, or powers, or things in the sky, or things under the earth, or anything in the world can come between us and the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38-39

Jesus has prepared a place for Christians with him in heaven:

“Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not let your hearts trouble you. Believe in God, and believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms. And I am going now to prepare a place for you. I would not tell you this if it was not true. And after I have prepared a place for you, I will come back. I will take you to stay with me, so that you will be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going’.”

John 14:1-4
