Talk about freedom in Christ! We're all going to die, but we don't have to be afraid of that. In fact, when we do have fear, we're allowing Satan to exercise his power. Christ is above all things (nihilist deceivers like Satan included) and conquered death to bring the possibility of eternal life.
Mark Driscoll pointed out that for those in Christ, what we experience in this life is as bad as it will EVER be. After we die it only gets better. Conversely, those who have not received Christ should be terrified of death- because apart from Christ this life is as good as it gets, and it gets A LOT worse when you die.
"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life." [1 John 5:11,12]
