A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, "Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side."

Very quietly the doctor said, "I don't know."

"You don't know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is on the other side?" stated the man.

The doctor was holding the handle of the door. On the other side of which came a sound of scratching and whining. He hopened the door. A dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing: I know my Master is there, and that is enough. And, when the door opens, I will pass through it with gladness, but with no fear - if I know HIM!"

Lord, I thank You that because I do know you that there is no fear on what is on the other side of the door. I do know that there will be no pain, no tears, no sorrow - only joy, health, riches. Thank you, Lord! Help me to share You with others so that they too will know no fear!!
