Are you scared to die? Does thinking about your death make you nervous about eternity? You don't have to be afraid of that monster in the dark anymore.

The Word of God in 1 Corinthians 15:54 says, "Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where oh death is your victory? Where Oh death is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law, but thanks be to God, He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." There's the last monster - the one that lurks in the dark no matter how old we are - death.

A doctor, who is a follower of Jesus Christ, was at his 45th class reunion talking with another doctor friend, who was an atheist. All of a sudden the atheist said, "Can you tell me a little bit about what you believe in?" The other doctor responded, "Well I'd be glad to, but why are you asking?" The man who had been an atheist all his life said, "Well frankly, I'm nervous about eternity."

You should be nervous if you're not ready to meet God. God says that because of Jesus' death, death has been swallowed up in victory. This is because the only thing to fear about death ultimately is God. That's because of the Bible's verdict on all of us - that all have sinned and missed God's glorious perfection. The sentence that follows this verdict in the Bible says, "The soul that sins, it shall die."( Ezekiel 18:1)

When an eternal death penalty hangs over us, we know it deep down inside. It rightfully makes us nervous about eternity. The incredible thing you need to know is that Jesus came as our substitute to die the death penalty that we deserve. If you put all your trust in Him, you will have your sin erased. John 5:24 says that the moment you come to Christ you cross over from death to a new life.

It is wonderful to look forward to eternity and to know the Savior who is waiting for you on the other side of your last breath. If you're not sure you do, you could take care of that right now. Death, that last monster in the dark, pursues us throughout our life, and it will ultimately catch us. If you have made a life-changing commitment to Jesus Christ, you don't ever need to fear that moment again. He has beaten that monster once and for all.
