We may fear a lot of things, but death doesn’t have to be one of them.  The dark, snakes, heights, whatever it is for you, there are a lot of things we might fear.  But over and over again the bible speaks to us about saving love of Jesus Christ that rescues us from death.  

We may be afraid of how we are going to die, but we need not fear dying.  We are free to live, no longer bound by the fear of death.  Free to live, to love, to forgive, to show mercy, all just like Jesus. 

Prayer:  Lord, you take away the fear of death, and free us to live.  Break the chains that bind us, that hold us back, so that we may fully live for you and your kingdom, to make the world a better place for those around us.
