Extract: Death

How many look at death (believers, I mean) as something solemn, the thought of which is to be avoided; instead of being able to say with Paul, "To die is gain." True, death came from the entrance of sin, but if it should overtake me, I shall be borne upon the crest of the wave, right into the presence of the Lord, one leap into the bosom of Christ. In the death of the believer, I only see the expression of the love of Christ opening the way to a place where the soul can be present with Himself.
