Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.Hebrews 2:14-15, ESV
Fear of death is a reality worldwide. Everyone outside of Christ lives in lifelong slavery to the devil due to their fear of death. This is the cutting reality of this world, regardless of all protestations to the contrary. But there is hope in Jesus, and this hope delivers us from fear of death and lifelong slavery.
