Sometimes, I am reminded sharply of how short my life on earth is. Hearing stories of young lives passing away or even looking at how my children have grown so quickly, I think, “Wow, we truly are just a vapor in the wind”. My Nana tells me, “Ash, it goes so quickly, and yet on the inside I still feel the same as I did when I was a little girl.”
“You do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? Indeed, it is a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears” (James 4:14).
Our bodies are dying, but inward, the soul keeps going. It shows the importance of what lies after our short life here on earth and why we should care.
Often times, people get freaked out thinking about this… with good reason. Yet, it has to be dealt with! Where you go when you die is of utmost importance. Forever is a long time!
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus or Lord” (Romans 6:23).
God sent His Son, to live a perfect life and to die on the cross for you. A lot of times people think to themselves, “I’m a good person.” But, we all sin! Just because you’ve never killed someone or generally try to be kind, doesn’t mean you are a good person. We all fall short, we all have thought badly of someone, have told a lie, etc. Unless you see yourself as a sinner who needed Jesus to die for you, you do not know Him.
It’s simple, believe He came and died for you, and tell Him you want to live for Him. Give your life to Jesus.
There is nothing we need more desperately than Christ.
