This is such a powerful verse when you take a step back and look at the big picture. If you were to read it out of context it may make you wonder about the person. I’m here to tell you when you live for Christ and have brought him in your life, it changes us. We become more like him. He puts us through challenges that make us stronger so we can learn more. Patience, prayer, forgiveness, servant. These are things that Christ taught us and much more during his time on Earth. What happens when you have accepted Christ as your Savior and came to the cross and lived a life for him? At the “end” it turns out to just be the beginning of another chapter. Your soul is released from this wordly form and you get to stand with God and Christ and be able to enter the gates of heaven. I will never be able to express my excitement for heaven! But I will leave you with this verse to help describe a good portion: Revelation 21:4 (NIV)  He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
