One can assume his morning started as normal, yet this morning would end differently. Was he momentarily distracted as he drove down the highway so that he didn’t notice the truck turning? No one will ever know because he slammed into the back of it, and in a flash, his life ended.
Months ago, one pleasant summer evening, it was a perfect night for a bike ride. But as he changed lanes, a car struck him, in a flash, his life ended and the driver’s would never be the same.
Sudden. Tragic. Irreversible. One can’t guarantee they will live a full, long life. One may only have 21 years, perhaps 36 years, or fewer years on this earth.
Friends, the purpose here is not to focus on death, but life. May we not take even a moment for granted. May we rejoice in the life God has given us and invest it as He leads.
“But this I say, brethren, the time is short…”
(1 Corinthians 7:29)
“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without,
redeeming the time.”
And friends, if you haven’t, please settle the important matter of where you will spend eternity.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou
shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
