20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also comes through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
1 Corinthians 15:20-22
Christ’s resurrection as firstfruits indicates that we who have placed our hope in Jesus will follow suit. Death is just the beginning of life for the Christian. When we close our eyes it would just be to reopen them in eternal life, being with the Lord forever. Don’t fear death, death has no authority over us, even though we die we will live (John 11:25).
