Signs of the times
A few weeks ago, we heard about the tragedy at Wal-Mart. A 21 year old male walks into the store and starts shooting people… 22 Killed and 27 injured. I think about the 22 people who died… were they really prepared to die that morning. I think most of us put in the same situation would say no, we were not ready for that moment of death. Just think if you never had a chance to say to that family member I love you one more time. Or maybe to say I’m sorry. We will all die and most will not know when or even how.
Another thing to think about those who died will all have to stand in front of God and be accountable for All the things they did in this world. In Hebrews 9:27 it says, “And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,” and in Matthew 12:36 we find this “But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.” My friend your death and then Judgement day is coming for us all.
My question is this… are you ready? You may never be in a shooting like these, but in a blink of an eye your life can be over. Just think about how many close calls with death you have had. Maybe driving your car or at work or even an illness! Everyday we hear about someone dropping dead from a heart attack or died driving to work. Again… Are you ready?
In closing… Are you prepared for death? Are you ready for the forever life? Today you can take the steps to be ready. Mark 1:15 says “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Take the time now, before it’s to late, and ask Jesus to forgive your sins and come into your heart. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Don’t wait, Remember those who died this morning didn’t plan to die! God Bless!
