Death is an important process 

and a natural, unavoidable part 

of the cycle of life.

We will all die, it is a fact of life.

Understanding that death is inevitable can

 teach us to live more wholeheartedly in the 

present moment.

When the heart stops beating, the lungs stop 

breathing, and the brain stops sending 

vital life signals throughout the body, a person

 is declared "dead." But the Bible has a different

 take on death.

According to the Bible, death is the separation 

of the soul from the body, not the end of life.

Of all life experiences, the loss 

of a loved one is, more likely 

than not, one of life's most 

stressful events.

Death can also be a painful and 

unsettling part of life. 

Love never dies.

Throughout history and around the world

 there exists one experience which can more 

likely bind mankind together... that experience 

is death.

Death is inevitable to whomever

 or whatever is born.

The death of a loved one can be 

life's most confusing and dreadful

 turning points. When a death takes 

place, one may experience a wide 

range of profoundly intense 

emotions, even when the death 

is expected. 

Many people speak of feeling an 

initial stage of numbness after 

first learning of a death. These 

feelings are normal, healthy,

appropriate, and common

 reactions that can help us 

come to terms with our loss.

Death and bereavement can also

cause major emotional crisis. Death 

and bereavement could produce 

profound emotional reactions 

and meltdowns. 

Death can give rise to feelings 

of pain, agony, depression, denial,

anger, powerlessness, despair, and 

sadness. It can become gravely 

debilitating... dramatically 

interfering with one's quality

of life, i.e., one's ability to 

function properly.  

Death is no respecter

of persons.

Death is the ultimate leveler. 

It does not discriminate. 

It does not matter how great of a saint or 

sinner one may be... or how weak or strong, 

rich or poor, educated or uneducated... any 

of us can be here one moment and gone

 the next.

Death does not ask for our 


Death is the great equalizer which reigns

 and rules how, when and where it will

Death is perhaps one of the most constant 

things in life that all of us will eventually face. 

Regardless of race, creed, color, ethnicity, 

socio-economic standing, age or any other 

factor, every being still has one thing in 


we will all die. 

Death comes to everyone. 

Death breaks down every 

difference in humanity until 

we are all the same... 


The tragic and unpredictable days of death,

 sorrow, and grief are inevitable life events all

 cultures share and share alike.

In the human life cycle, everyone

 will, at some point, cease to exist.

Death of humans is seen as a natural and essential 

part of life. It is often defined as the permanent 

stopping of all vital bodily activities. It is the 

cessation of all biological functions that sustain 

a living organism.

Death is a fact of life... 

it is a natural cycle of life.

Death is the culmination of all 

that our lives have been.

No matter how rich or poor, how

 accomplished, knowledgeable, or

 refined one may be... death is 

inevitable for us all.

"Death is the shepherd of all 


Psalm 49:14

Death is the final stage, the withdrawal from the external 

world, the termination of the biological functions that

define a living being. It is the constant, changeless ending

 of the vital processes by which we are sustained. This

occurs when life leaves the physical body. 

Each person's death is unique.

Whenever or however death takes place, every loss brings 

its share of pain, disruption, changes, and challenges.

Death is an occurrence that can change the way 

a family functions in any culture, and it is the 

destination we will all share.

The thought of death unnerves many people. Even the 

most secure and devout Believer can have occasions when 

they dread and/or fear death.


But Believers have no reason to fear...

The Bible is very clear in pointing out that there is a point 

when life on earth will end. The Scriptures tells us in 


"To everything there is a season, a time

 for every purpose under heaven"...

Our time to transition may come much later than we are 

expecting. On the other hand, it may occur much sooner.

Some choose to laugh in the face of death. When, in 

reality, they are actually afraid... preoccupied with some 

impending disaster, which leads to their philosophy of...

 “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die”

1 Corinthians 15:32.

Their existence may appear to be a joy-ride, from the 

outside, but it is a pointless way to live one's life. God

 does not intend for us to let time slip awawith such 


We can only enjoy life in the light of our relationship with

 God, for apart from God, we are nothing.

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark

 of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently

 than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of 

overwhelming grief, a deep contrition, and of 

unspeakable love.

Washington Irvin

God has made everything 

beautiful in its season.

There is an appointed time for 

everything. And there is a time for 

every event under heaven ~

A time to give birth, and a time

 to die; A time to plant, and a time

 to uproot what is planted.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

Each of us will travel a path to 

an inevitable conclusion.

 Life’s journey will, someday, carry all of us

 to the distant shores of the great beyond.

The late, Steve Jobs, founder and CEO of Apple 

and Pixar Animation, said the following 

at the commencement address he gave at Stanford in 2005

(shortly after his diagnosis with pancreatic cancer):

"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to 

heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the 

destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And 

that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the 

single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It 

clears out the old to make way for the new.

Right now, the new is you, but someday not too long from 

now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared 

away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. But lest 

we work ourselves into a real funk and start wondering 

what’s the use of anything, let’s not forget that while we 

all may be equal in death, it’s what we do while we’re 

living that really matters. This is what we’ll be 

remembered for." 

 Accepting and coming to terms with the fact

 that death is an expected part of life can help

 us live more in this moment in time.

Being conscious of our mortality helps us

 live each day with more appreciation and 

gratefulness. Accepting our mortality and 

that one day everyone will die is only the 

beginning of living and dying well.

Live while you are alive!

The future is now!

For the believer, our days on earth 

are just the beginning of our existence. 

 Death is not the end... 

it is the doorway to a new life of serving God

For the believer, to be “Absent” from the body 

means, at death, the spirit is separated from

 the physical body and moves immediately

 into its eternal abode with God, forever.

For the believer, 

we believe death means...transitioning.

It means... passing through the gateway

 to another dimension... to our eternal home.

May we love our loved ones with a Holy detachment,

so that when the time comes, they will be free to go to 

their eternal home... with God.

It is considered a grace that we die. 

If we did not pass on, we would have to live 

in a sinful world for all eternity.
