The fear of death is strong. However, God's Word is clear that, as followers of Jesus, we no longer need to fear death. Paul explains this is a hopeful and triumphant passage in 1 Corinthians 15 in which he proclaims that when Jesus returns, God will transform our physical bodies, making them imperishable. The reason for this is because physical decay that leads to death is actually a just judgment for humanity's sin that Jesus paid in full at the Cross for those who belong to Him by grace through faith. Thus, not only do decay and death have no place in God's eternal kingdom, but also death has been redefined from a transition to eternal condemnation to a transition to everlasting life in the presence of our Savior. In light of this, ask yourself, "Do I need an attitude adjustment about death?" With respect to loved ones in Christ who have died, find comfort and encouragement from these verses as you grieve. With respect to your own death, replace fear with peace and security in Jesus.

When David sees it, he asks, "“What shall be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” His focus was on God, and how Goliath's unchallenged mocking was a reproach to God. David agrees to challenge Goliath and never loses sight that the Lord is the one who gets the credit and who will deliver him.
