“For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. ” (Romans 14:8 ESV)
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither shall there be mourning, no crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” (Revelations 21:4 ESV)
I was sitting watching TV last night when I heard sirens screaming louder and louder. It was the first responders. They went to an apartment across the street from me.
I have a serious case of nose trouble (I tend to be nosy). So I started watching, from my apartment, across the street. No, I did not go over there. I do think I need to teach the first responders how to park the truck though. It blocked my view. So not being able to see a whole lot, I resorted to a Facebook page that relays information from the scanner. I don’t know for sure who it is but narcan was administered with CPR in progress.
As I have been watching things unfold, going back through memories of chain of command and SOP’s, I realize whoever it was did not survive. Everyone has gone except the local police officer. He will have to wait for the coroner and the funeral home to arrive.
But you just never know when it will be your last day to live. Your last time to make a difference. The last chance to give your life to God. There is a saying that goes like this. “Live everyday like it’s your last.” So before you do that, how about including God? How about living everyday for God? Today is a great day to start.
What if today is your last day and you haven’t given your life to God? What if you haven’t repented and turned to God and you take your last breath? Are you prepared for the consequences? So how about it? Ready? Because you really never know when your last day will be.
