What happens when we die? That’s a great question, and there’s a lot of answers that are being given to it; but what does the Bible have to say?
Does your life bring praise and glory to God? Sometimes we forget about God. Sometimes we neglect God. We try to put him out of our mind.

We know that after three days, Jesus Christ was raised from the dead. He lives. And we don’t have to live a fearful, depressed, cowardly, pessimistic, defeated life.
