If today was your last day, and you never walked the face of this planet again, what would people remember you for? What things did you accomplish? Would you be greatly missed, or quickly forgotten? Would you be remembered as a selfish grump who did nothing but complain? Or, a loving, giving person who loved others and served God?
And then there’s the big question. In fact, you were probably expecting just one more question, weren’t you?
When the time comes, and it is just you and God, what will He say about your life on earth? Will He be well-pleased? Moderately pleased? Or, worse, not pleased at all?
Do know this, and think about it. This life has only one purpose! To live, and breathe, and move and to have our being in Him! Yes! You and I were made to serve God. So if most of your life has been spent serving the flesh, well then, you already know that God is not very happy with you. The good news is that if you are reading this right now, there is still time! Yes! Right now you can repent and turn to God! You can renounce the flesh, along with its corrupt desires, and start living for the Father right this very moment! He is hoping and waiting for you!
What’s more, you will have Jesus Christ in your cheering section constantly encouraging you. He has given you a helper, and a counselor, so that you don’t have to do it alone! Through the gift of salvation, you can call upon Jesus and be given this wondrous comforter called the Holy Spirit! The Spirit of God Himself will immediately come and live inside of your spirit if you sincerely ask and repent today!
Friend, tonight, tomorrow..next week…could be your last! Is there anything here in this world worth an eternity of suffering? Jesus came that you would have life, and have it more abundantly. He has saved you from eternal Hell and damnation! But in order to take hold of it, you must tell Jesus that you want to serve Him. You must ask God to forgive you of all your sins, and tell Him that you want a new life sealed by the blood of Jesus, and signed in the Lamb’s Book of Life in heaven!
What are you waiting for?
