At the end of the day all we’ve acquired is a bunch of stuff. It may mean something to man, but it means nothing when it comes to departing this world. Nothing we acquire can go with us.
I was sitting feeling emotional due to the death of my co worker. As they pack his office, which happens to be right next to mine, it made me really think. We work to get what we want, need, and desire in life. Some people cut throat and have their dog eat dog mentality to get to the top, etc. The whole time, nothing we acquire benefits us in the end. Other people may benefit from it until they die, but the person who worked hard, cheated, schemed, or whatever to get it doesn’t benefit.
I’m only saying this because as sure as we live we will die. People are going about the hustle and bustle of their lives as if they aren’t going to take the same journey. One thing about me I know I will and therefore I accept it. Some people act as if they will live forever. News flash! You won’t!
People worry about their things/their stuff, but they don’t think about getting their spiritual houses in order. This stuff will be taken, sold, or given away, none of it will benefit us when we are gone. It’s very important people start thinking about getting their spiritual houses in order while they can. If you don’t then how you chose to live on this earth determines your eternal home. It’s no joke, it’s serious business.
None of us would have thought my co-worker would be gone, but he is. He was younger than me and not sick. Life can be taken in an instant. I mean in a second. Individuals must get ready now while they can. If it doesn’t matter to you, it’s your choice. However, if you want Heaven to be your home, then you have to live as if you do right now while you can. None of us knows what the next moment will bring.
Death comes for us all and it does not discriminate. It takes babies to the elderly. It takes the sick, the healthy, the poor, the rich, man, boy, woman, and girl of all races and populations. Jesus says He’s coming back “in a twinkling of an eye.” I’ve seen it so many times. We must be ready! I know we can’t be ready by knowing when it will happen, but we all can be ready by living for Jesus while we yet live.
Many people talk about it, but they are not about the business of Jesus. They do things so man can be pleased, yet they forget the Master sees it all. Those very people they are trying to please have to someday meet the Maker too! Get your minds and hearts right. Get them on Jesus, for He’s coming back sooner or later for us all. We all will have our turn! One thing for sure getting into Heaven isn’t based on what you’ve acquired on earth. You must be born again and you must do what the Lord has commanded us all to do! He didn’t discriminate nor did He have any respectable people. What was said was meant for us all!! We have a choice to choose or not to choose Jesus! If you love Him you will live for Him. Point blank! All of our curtains are going down day by day!
