The other evening as I was looking over social media I came across a beautiful picture from a cemetery taken by my friend Rad Drew (www.RadDrewPhotography.com). The picture is of a grave from circa 1875 and it has this quote with it.
Remember reader as you pass by,
As you are now so once was I.
As I am now so you will be.
Prepare for death and follow me.
— Unknown author from a gravestone, circa 1875.
There is a lot of Biblical counsel in that little poem. The truth remains that 1 out of 1 will die. The only exception will be if Jesus returns and takes His children to Heaven.
I want to ask you a question. Are you prepared to step out into eternity? Have you made preparation?
If you have not made preparation you need to do that. You must realize that you are a sinner. Romans 3:23 tells us that we are all sinners. Because we are sinners we are separated from God. Romans 6:23 tells us, “the wages of sin is death;” This death will be eternal separation from God. That is the bad news. The good news is in the second part of that verse in Romans 6:23, “…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our LORD.” All a person has to do is to acknowledge to God that they are a sinner and need a Saviour. We must confess that to God calling upon Him in prayer. We must be sorry for our sin and tell Him that. Then when we acknowledge that and tell Him that and ask Him to save us, He will.
If you would like to know Jesus Christ as your Saviour, please contact me as I would love to show you how.
So, how are you doing?
