You Asked for It: What Happens When We Die?

“What happens when we die and how does that relate to our eternity with Jesus?” There’s an old bluegrass song, “Lord build me just a cabin in the corner of gloryland. In the shade of his tree of life that it may ever stand.” Another song with which you may be more familiar, “I’m satisfied…
