There is no hope in death. There is only death. In this state of being, there is only fear as the clock ticks closer to the moment of death.
There is hope in faith in Christ. Faith is everything. In the state of faith, there is comfort and joy in the knowledge of eternal life.
God sent his only son Jesus Christ into the world to free us from sin and death. He died on a cross, and on the third day, he rose again in glory.
Those who believe in Jesus Christ and the Gospel share in the joy and hope of the Resurrection. Death has no sting. It is merely the transition into the eternal pleasure of being in the glory of God.
Jesus Christ delivers us from death, and I gratefully put my trust in him.
