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