Sally’s heart was gripped with fear. It was her first day of high school. She would be on unfamiliar grounds. “What if I can’t find my homeroom or my classrooms? What if other students mock me?” These questions tormented her. Then, her older sister, remembering when she went through it, said to her, “Don’t worry, I’ll be with you.” Sally’s fears were eased. Isn’t this true with us all? Think back to your first day at school, at college, in another town, or on a new job. We fear the unknown in relation to these things, and we’re comforted if someone is there saying, “I’ll be with you.” What about death? This is one time you can’t take anyone with you. Perhaps, this is one aspect of death that causes us to fear it as we do: Passing through that veil, entering that larger stage, feeling the cold, clammy hand of the dreaded reaper. “What’s on the other side? What do I do? Oh, how I wish someone could go with me!” Then, softly and tenderly, (if you’re a Christian) Jesus says, “I’ll be with you.” It’s true! Those who die in Christ, “sleep in Jesus” (1 Thess. 4:14).
