There have been circumstances, ordained of God, where I was in such a situation that I was unable to think of death. As I get a little older and the elements of age invoke their obnoxious toils, on this frame that I have occupied these many years, death is realistic. In case you expect to hear of my decease shortly, forget it. I am living one day at a time and enjoying buying up every opportunity to present the Lord Jesus that I can. To my knowledge, the hearse is not at the door.
What went through your mind when you experienced the thought that you were about to die? If you have not experienced it, the day is coming. God says we have that appointment…”It is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27) If nothing else floods the mind, in all probability you have thought: “Am I ready?”
I take the liberty of quoting from God’s book, the Bible, the NASB Version:
“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)
“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows. Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will confess him before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will deny him before My Father who is in heaven. “(Matt 10:30-33)
Those are the words of the Lord Jesus Christ and they are not uttered without deep concern and love for you and me. He is our guarantee for all eternity when our life and love revolve around Him alone. Jesus Saves!
