This life is a journey, and it is one that can be snatched right out of our hands. When my life looked as if it would be cut short, I remember thinking, “There are so many things I want to do for the Lord, and I haven’t completed my work.” I want to ask you: If your life were being cut short, what would you think about? What would you want to get done? Trust me, your vision will change when faced with the possibility of not being here. You will want to finish things. You will want to take care of those things that have been put on hold because of time constraints or just because there has been a lack of correct priorities. What is your priority? If you are not saved, then your priority should be salvation.
We also have to think about all those people we know who are refusing to serve God and how utterly empty their lives really are. They may look on the outside as though they have it all together, but on the inside they are dead. If you are saved, then it should be helping others become saved by sharing with them your personal story and the message of the gospel: the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
