I struggle to understand the fragility of life. One second a person is here. The next they could be gone. The passing of this life into the next life happens in one single second. One final breath.
I have one question. Who meets that person in that split second? This is a question we should all ask ourselves. It is the single most important question you will ever ask yourself. The Most Important Question EVER. One question. One answer. Jesus Christ.
I struggle to understand how a person can allow their heart to be hardened so they cannot see that Jesus Christ is the answer to that very important question. He is The Guide.
My Mom died one month ago. She died quickly and unexpectedly. Yes, she has not had great health for years but it was still sudden. She woke up and had a normal morning. But by mid-afternoon, she was gone. I know that my Mom believed in Jesus Christ. I know that He met her and was her Guide into the new world she was entering. Even though it is sad for those left behind, it is wonderful for her. She is with our Lord and Savior right now. Her brokenness is healed. Her body is whole. She is in the presence of LOVE. She has peace.
Ask yourself the tough question. Who will be your guide? This question may make you squirm. Good. I’m happy that you’re reading these words and I’m even happier that you’re squirming. Squirming is good.
Today is the day for you to answer this question. Today is the day for you to ask your loved ones this question so they can answer it for themselves. We are not promised any tomorrows – only today. Be bold. Talk about Jesus today with all the people you love.
Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that apears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:13-14
Dear God, Thank You for today. Thank You for Your Son Jesus Christ. What a precious gift you give to all who seek You. All that You ask in return is that we believe. Empower us and use us to reach the lost and hurting in this world. Keep us in the Light and the Love who is only Your Son Jesus Christ. In His name, we pray. Amen.
Stay in the Light and the Love Always,
