What will happen when I die?

This is a profound question that every person wonders about: including you! We all want to know what is waiting for us when we finally leave this existence (all we have ever known), and enter into whatever is waiting for us afterward. For some of you, this curiosity leaves you frightened or anxious.

  • What if there is nothing? Will my existence merely float off into darkness while my physical body decomposes back into the earth?

  • What if I am on the wrong side of something? Will I spend the rest of eternity living in pain or misery because of the mistakes I am making right now?

  • What if there is no way of actually knowing? Will we all merely have to wait and see, crossing our fingers that whatever is to come will show mercy to us?

As a Christian, I put my faith in a place labeled as “Heaven,” but it is most likely not the heaven you are thinking about. Christians often find themselves wrestling with the concept of Heaven. What’s it like? Who else will be there? What will my part be? The reality is that the Bible (and Jesus) spend very little time explaining Heaven to us. It appears the importance was not in its substance, but its proximity.
