For the twentieth anniversary of Larry King Live, Barbara Walters interviewed the man who became famous by interviewing others. She asked Larry King direct and revealing questions. Two of the most telling responses came when she probed about fear and faith. 

Walters asked King, “What is your greatest fear?”

He immediately replied, “Death.” This interview occurred in 2005 when he was at the very top of his career and had much to lose, but none of that mattered compared to the fear of death.

Her follow-up question was, “Do you believe in God?”

King stated, “Not sure. I’m an agnostic.”

Regardless of our success or our status in life, if we’re uncertain about God we will certainly be fearful of death. 

Easter reminds us that the fear of death dissolves when we walk through our life with Jesus who walked out of the tomb.

How has your walk with Jesus through life and during this pandemic helped you to overcome your fear of death?
