It’s hard to talk about death or dying. That’s why you hear euphemisms like “passing away” or “expired” or “end of life.” Believers, in particular, use phrases like “gone to be with the Lord,” “homegoing” or “gone to Heaven.” Sometimes people use the word “promotion.” That’s a great way to speak about death—as a promotion to Heaven (2 Corinthians 5:8). The world is full of people striving for a promotion—in social circles, online or on the job. But promotion to Heaven is the best advancement you’ll ever receive.
