The below quote is from John Piper’s ’50 Reasons why Jesus came to die’  book you can download the full book here for free!

In our happiest times we do not want to die. The wish for death rises only when our suffering seems unbearable. What we really want in those times is not death, but relief. We would love for the good times to come again. We would like the pain to go away…We want life and happiness…We are kidding ourselves when we romanticize death…The longing of the human heart is to live and to be happy. God made us that way. “He has put eternity into man’s heart” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)…eternal life is not merely the extension of this life with its mix of pain and pleasure. As hell is the worst outcome of this life, so “eternal life” is the best. It is supreme and ever-increasing happiness where all sin and all sadness will be gone. All that is evil and harmful in this fallen creation will be removed…It is true every moment of life, now and always: For those who trust Christ the best is yet to come.

-John Piper
