How differently would you live your life if you knew that today was your last day to live? So many of us can get distracted with things that, if we really weigh them out, are not all that important. How differently would you treat those around you? Would you reach out to someone who you haven’t seen in years? Would you forgive someone who has wronged you? How would you spend your time?
Each one of us is going to face the end of our time on earth one day. If you are a believer and you know anything about bible prophecy, you know that the rapture can happen at any time. What if you knew that the rapture was going to happen tomorrow? Would it make you check yourself? Would you finally look at those around you who need Jesus and would you tell them about Him so that they too could be saved? Would you tell your loved ones how much you care? Would you tell those friends you have that aren’t saved about Jesus?
I know it sounds extreme, but in reality, we never know how much time we have left. I’m sure that many of those who have gone before us thought they had more time. Our time on this earth really is short compared to eternity. Make sure that you are living life on purpose and not just for yourself. Look around you. See people who are in need and those who are lost. Reach out and be Jesus’ hands and feet on this earth as we should be. If you knew this was your last day, would you be ready? Jesus died for each of us. He was perfectly innocent but He carried our sins on the cross and took our place. He died so that we could live forever with Him one day. Being saved has nothing to do with your church attendance or any of the good things you have done. What it boils down to is this. Have you asked Him to be your Lord and Savior? Have you surrendered your life to Him and let Him into your heart? So many people think that they have to meet some standard before they can come to Jesus. This is so far from the truth. He wants you just as you are, mess and all. He will work out the rest. Are you ready?
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28
