Don’t Worry About Your Death

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”

John 14:1-3

I’m surprised by how many committed and wonderful Christians who know the Lord and are full of the spirit still have questions about where they will be positioned in life after their death. They wonder if they’ll get into Heaven and if they are truly forgiven. 

Even Mr. Rogers was afraid of death. Yes, the man who created and hosted the preschool television show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, was an advocate for children, and once served as a Presbyterian minister. When I was a child, I enjoyed watching him on television because he talked to kids about many topics. During a documentary about his life, his wife tells a story about him reading Matthew chapter 25 while lying in bed, referencing sheep going to Heaven and goats not entering into Heaven in the last days. He asked her, “Do you think God will count me among the sheep?” In reference to a life well lived, his wife said, “Fred, if you’re not counted among the sheep, we’re all in trouble.”  

Friend, Jesus says “Do not let your hearts be troubled,” don’t worry about your death. If you have been baptized and have trusted Jesus with your life, regardless of whether you have doubts, rough days, or even backslidden a few times, you are still okay. It is your faith in Jesus that gets you into Heaven. You are in if you are friends with Him!


Father, help me to trust Jesus with my life.
