Once you become a true disciple of Jesus, you are a new creature. You are now a son or daughter of God and a brother or sister of Jesus. You are no longer earthbound, but destined for heaven. You don't belong to the world anymore. You are free and death will have no power over you in the end by the grace of God. You are elevated to a new level of existence. You become one with God through receiving the Holy Eucharist. You are essentially home. I could go on more, but you get the idea.
