Death is not the Worst thing

There has never been a time like this before, with a pandemic of this kind having such a global dominance. What better time to reflect and to choose to live differently than ever before. Will you make use of this time? Or will it pass you by like a thief in the night?

Death is not the worst thing

and neither is it the end

Death without salvation in Jesus is the worst and deadliest bet

And yet you are willing daily, to gamble with forever

Your eternal location when last did you stop to consider

instead consumed by daily reports of all the doom and gloom

The media and the world got you blind and you don’t have a clue

You think you’re being clever living busy doing you

Do you hear the media, which is meant to report the news

Do you hear them sharing on what will save you, His Good News

the absolute truth and answer to healing and wholeness

Nah they won’t talk about it, its meant to be hidden from you

But here I am to tell you

Your life is THE RACE you are running

with a finishing line brought on by death

You choose who you run with

But your choice only you will face

Not choosing Jesus will mean you won't be saved

This will be your reality for all eternity

Can you handle that?


Death is where you face your decision

It will be too late to turn back

Although then you won’t have a choice

Think about it for a moment -

Living for eternity with the outcome of your decision

Oh why will you not choose


Is it because of what you see

The offerings of the world

Is it because of people’s influence

who make you think you are good

don't get fooled by their confidence

they too are running their race


Oh, can you see now? Right now, please

When death comes it is just you

You come before Jesus, the Judge and King,

Hear what He says in Matthew

Chapter 25 verse 31-46

sheds light on everything

COVID-19 came to shake you,

and wake you and disrupt your daily to-dos

Don't think you are entitled

You are not entitled to anything


You have because He allows you, whether you believe or not it's true

EVERYTHING is His

to give as He chooses to

See Him in all the details

He inserted just for you

Did you think you had a job?

Did you think you were educated?

Did you think you were healthy and well?

You thought you have a family?

You thought you got this? You thought you got that?

You thought what?

You did what?

You have got to start thinking

Thinking about more than this life

YOU got nothing

Nothing.

What you gonna take with you as you cross the finish line?

Your wealth

Your health

Your followers

Your friends

Your family

Your accolades

Nothing.

You ain’t taking nothing with you

When will you realise?

Now or when you die?

Death is not what I’m focusing on

It’s about your race and your time

The case of Salvation in Christ

How you run your race of life?

Again I ask - will it be for God or not?

You get to decide

Obedience, oh obedience!

Get woke and see that life and death,

heaven and hell,

are for real

Your next "whatever it maybe?" is not promised

No one knows what lies in wait ahead of you

Only Jesus is our absolute guarantee

Only God sees all things

Take the decision right now,

I accept You Jesus, My Saviour, Lord and King

Note: If you have decided to give your heart to Jesus, please go ahead and say this prayer:


"Father God, I recognise that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross at Calvary, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life and my heart now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. I ask this in Jesus' precious and holy name. Amen."


Next Steps:

  • Find a local church where you can worship God.

  • Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ.

  • Spend time with God each day - praying to Him and reading His Word, ask God to help increase your faith and your understanding of the Bible.

  • You can also drop me an email, I would love to know how you are doing.
