You become aware, in a moment that your very life is in jeopardy. When this happens, as we have seen in movies, people tend to think about what happens after we die. They think about God. Some will even, in that moment, attempt to make deals with God. He will answer sincere prayers, because only He knows the attitude of the heart, but I don’t think God is in the “deal making” business.
The truth is; no man knows when the countdown clock of his life will reach “0”! I once took a youth group to a cemetery and it became obvious some life’s lasted years, while others only lasted a few, or even just days. Like the song by Kansas, “Dust in the Wind”:
Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Now don’t hang on
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won’t another minute buy
No one likes to think about dying, but it is one of the most important decisions you can make BEFORE you die. For once your last breath escapes your body your soul is ushered into eternity. The only options are: heaven or hell. By using your freewill and not choosing to recognize God’s son Jesus as your savior who died for all of the wrong things you have done in your life, then you are choosing hell.
God doesn’t send any human to hell, they send themselves.
A lot of people thought about life and death during the peak of the Corona Virus, and as a result, several made the decision to accept Jesus, forgiveness, and life. Now times are getting better again, but as we witnessed in the collapse of the condo building in Surfside, FL., one never knows when their life will be required of them. One moment sleeping sound in bed, and the next, standing before God.
“But you don’t have a clue what tomorrow may bring. For your fleeting life is but a warm breath of air that is visible in the cold only for a moment and then vanishes!” James 4:14 (TPT)
Please, purpose a moment to make that important decision, before the clock of your life reaches “0”. If you choose God, I assure you will be glad you did.
I pray now for everyone who hasn’t taken the time to do this and I ask God to help you and to help you overcome the obstacles that might be holding you back from choosing Him. Blessings.
