Thomas a Kempis: the fear of death

Sunday, February 25, 2018
    He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.
    —Revelation 2:11 (ESV)
    He who loveth God with all his heart feareth not death, nor punishment, nor judgment, nor hell, because perfect love giveth sure access to God. But he who still delighteth in sin, no marvel if he is afraid of death and judgment.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ [1418], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1877, I.xxiv., p. 75 (see the book)
    See also Rev. 2:11; Matt. 10:28; Rom. 8:1-2,5-6; Heb. 2:14-15
Quiet time reflection:
    Wash me, Lord, and release me from fear of death.
