Are you ready?

Have you ever stopped to think about eternity? What will happen when you leave this earth?
I think about this a lot more now that I'm older! When I was younger, I really didn't think about it too much. I took for granted the days ahead of me....thinking I was somehow invincible.

I think a lot of people think that same way these days...never thinking about what could happen in the wink of an eye! I see it on the news all the time; young people's lives cut short. Do you think that they woke up that morning thinking about eternity...most people don't really think about it. These young people really thought that they had many years before they'd have to even worry about that kind of thing....but they were wrong! They thought they could just live there lives care free and doing whatever they wanted, even if it hurt other people, possibly doing things such as fighting, cheating, lying, stealing, damaging other people's property, driving drunk, maybe even killing.

People need to stop and think for a moment...where do I stand with God? Think about it right this very moment, because you never know when your life might come to an end! You are certainly not guaranteed tomorrow!

Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no man comes unto God but through me"
The Bible says that "All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God" and it also says, "Whoever calls on me shall be saved", speaking of Jesus. How simple it is...just a simple prayer...just admitting that you have done wrong and you realize that you need Jesus to help you change...and you are willing to turn from doing wrong and try every day to live like you know God would want you to! God knows your where you are weak, so ask Him for strength in that area. Remember that the Devil also knows where you are weak and he will try to tempt and trick you where you are the weakest, so be on the lookout for him. The Bible says that the Devil comes to Kill, Steal and Destroy! The only hope you have is to ask for God's help! God wants to help you over come the enemy because God loves you! God only wants what is best for you!

Our time on Earth is not guaranteed so please...think about where you stand with God...before it's too late!
