Beloved how many people do you know who have been buried or cremated in the last year or two or three?
Go back 5-10 years and if you are like me the numbers will be more than you had perhaps imagined possible.
Think back 20 years from today and put a face on those people who you once ate with and engaged in delightful conversations. You may know where their dead bodies are but have you wondered where these souls are now?
Their final chapter ended and so must yours. Is your name written in the book of life? If not you must perish in the Lake of Fire.
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15)
We usually think of our life in terms of years and how many we have attained but King David said "teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts to wisdom." Psalm 90:12
Day by day is how we must live our life for we have no promise of tomorrow.
Yes, God has appointed each of us so many days in which to live our lives and to seek the Lord for His righteousness. (Matthew 6:33)
Time passes quickly and soon we must answer to God with either a good conscience or an evil one. How is your conscience before God?
Do you think about death as you should? Oh, do not put off the thought of your own mortality because "as it is appointed unto man once to die but after this is the judgment. (Hebrews 9:27)
Nothing is more certain than death and dying and you must consider that your own death will soon come to pass and then where will you be? If you be in Christ then happy are ye and if not then sorrow will be your lot.
If you are in Christ then you are an ambassador for Jesus Christ and you must proclaim the good news or the gospel to your friends and family concerning the redemption in the shed blood of Jesus on Calvary's cross.
We must all stand before the Lord when we take our last breath and our eyelids close in death.
That day may not be far for some of us.
Those who reject Jesus Christ and His word will experience the Second death and the resurrection unto damnation.
Now is the only time to seek the Lord for mercy and to pray for saving faith and pardon for sin.
As you know death is all around us. Death for you and I is closer now than last year.
How many more years do you think you have?
How can a person escape judgment if they neglect so great a salvation as is found in Jesus Christ? Hebrews
I'm not asking you to join a church or to trust a pastor. I'm asking you to trust in Jesus who said "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no man comes to the Father but by me." (John 14:6)
"He that believes on the Son has everlasting life; and he tha believes not the Son shall not see life but the wrath of God abideth on him." (John 3:36)
