I came to know Jesus when I was nine years old. My grandfather had recently died and I had a lot of questions about life and death. These question turned into a fear of dying. Over the next several months I worried about what would happen if I were to die. Later that year I attended a church service with my mom where the preacher talked about what happens when you die. This definitely caught my attention, because this was the very thing I had been asking questions about.

He said the Bible says, we were all born separated from God, however the good news was God loved me and provided a way for eternal life with God forever. He said, God loved me so much he sent his Son Jesus to earth to die for my sins and take God’s punishment for my sins. He said, Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead three days later to prove he was God. He said, through believing in Jesus and his resurrection I could have my sin forgiven and live with God forever after I died. 

That night I placed my faith and trust in Jesus Christ. God gave me eternal life and he took away my fear of dying. That was many years ago, but Jesus is still as real to me now as he was then. A few years ago I had open heart surgery and even going into the operating room, I had no fear of dying because I knew Jesus had forgiven my sin and given me eternal life. The questions I had about what happens when a person dies, were answered through Jesus Christ.
