The wicked is thrust down by his wrongdoing, but the righteous has a refuge when he dies. (Proverbs 14:32)
Some see death as termination, but those trusting Christ view it as transit. At death, the body heads for the ground, but where does the soul go? For those without Christ’s eternal life, there is the anxiety of disembodiment, thrust into the dark abyss as a homeless, roofless, wall-less entity. But in Christ, there is the promise of the new body, the new city, the new community, and the new creation wherein is refuge and safety forever. No wonder Saint Teresa reportedly said as she was dying, “Welcome, sister death!” It’s the passage by which one enters Christ’s refuge.
