When we die, what’s next?
Paul, who diligently and ardently followed Jesus, was quite sure of the answer. He wrote, “The time of my spirit’s release from the body is at hand and I will soon go free.” [2 Timothy 2:4, The Amplified version]
We need to realize that we are more than a body—and that life is more than existing in the physical realm. It has been astutely said, “We are a spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a body.” [See 1 Thessalonians 5:23]
So, once our body dies, our spirit and soul continues on; for Paul that meant freedom.
