The fear of death


My name is Pietro, I come from a town named CattolicaEraclea, Sicily. When I was younger, I was active in the church, but inside of me I was afraid to die, and I was scared of what my future could bring. Through Schembre Vincenzo’sfamily, I began to attend the evangelical meetings and to know the Word of God. I gave my life to Jesus Christ, I recognized Him as my personal Savior and Lord. In my opinion, it was something good, I was happy, my parents didn’t disagree. Someone talked against me, but my father answered: “What’s better: stealing or going to an Evangelical Church?”. After a while, I left Sicily for work reasons to go in Germany, to Ludwigshafen. I have been attending the meetings for some years, I got married, and then I abandoned the community for 13 years (I used to work the whole time and the Lord was not in 1st place in my life anymore). So I recognized that I was no more happy or proud of myself, I had no more interests, I felt empty, sad, troubled. The Lord used GaspareIacono to bring me back to Him. Now I am happy to attend the community and I see how the Lord takes care of me. Recently I had surgery and I have almost lost my life. But I thank Jesus Christ because of His intervention after 3 weeks of sufferings. If you feel like I felt in some aspects of my life some year ago being away from God, if you feel like you have a huge burden killing your heart, you should know that what you’re experiencing is the burden of the sin. Every human being was born with sin, but remember and believe: “God so loved the world that he gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him won’t perish but will have eternal life”.

(John 3:16)


“I sought the Lord and he answered me.He delivered me from all my fears.”

(Psalm 34:4)
