Being ready
pastor corner

I am sitting in my office this morning and thinking about how I miss a dear friend and leader in the church who passed away nearly two years ago. The good news is that he had trusted Christ for forgiveness and had assurance of where he would end up after death.

As I thought about this subject, I realized that everyone does not have this assurance. There are many who have not made that decision to be a Christ follower. In a sense they are rolling the dice; they are playing Russian roulette concerning where they will spend eternity.

We as humanity make preparations for about everything. We prepare for careers through hands on experience or training. We prepare for retirement by investing or retirement plans. It is mind boggling to think that a person would plan for the short term but not plan for eternity and the afterlife.

The good news is that assurance of going to heaven is available to everyone, the rich and the poor, the young and the old, the uneducated and the educated, and people from every race. We can come to this place of death and not be concerned of where we will end up. The big question is, are YOU ready?
