Death has no power over us (none of us, not just Christians) because we are not the form – the body we’re in. The body will disintegrate like all other forms. We’re primarily spirit — that non-material, otherworldly stuff within each of us — and we survive the disintegration of the body.
Therefore, we have no excuse for not living according to the spirit – no excuse for not overcoming fear and being who we really are. We must remove the masks we wear and express our love and uniqueness to the world in whatever manner the spirit dictates.
Love/God bats last.
