Since Christians will live forever, they are told not to fear in the face of death. Paul says,
Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? — 1 Corinthians 15:55
Since we know we will be with God forever, there is no more fear of death for the Christian of true faith. In fact, death is even beneficial to a Christian, because it sends him to God, with whom he is longing to be. Paul writes, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. — Philippians 1:21.
