Isaac Asimov, an American writer and university professor, told the story of a rough ocean crossing. A kind steward said to a very seasick passenger, “Remember, no man ever died of seasickness.” The passenger’s response was, “Man don’t say that! It’s only the hope of dying that keeps me alive.” He recovered and did not really want to die, but his words “the hope of dying” are interesting. I have met many godly people who, with Christ in their lives, really had the hope of dying. They were ready and wanting to meet their Maker and loved ones who had gone before. Only those who have assurance of where they’re going in the next life, truly feel that way. John the Disciple wrote, “These things I have written to you who believe on the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.” That assurance comes by receiving Christ as Saviour.
