There is an essential difference between the decease of the godly and the death of the ungodly.
Death comes to the ungodly as a penal infliction but to the righteous, as a summons to his Father's palace!
To the lost sinner, it is an eternal execution to the saint, death is an undressing from all his sins, sorrows and infirmities.
Death to the wicked, is the king of terrors!
[Charles H. Spurgeon]
Matthew 25:46 ... And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
