We Shall All Die. Someday.

We shall all die. Someday.

To think otherwise is to live in delusion. No matter your religious persuasions, you will experience death.
The fear of death, the avoidance of the subject or the denial of its inevitability is a waste of your energy. Fear will torment you.
Accept death as a fact of life and be prepared for it.

Those who perished in the recent unfortunate air disaster in Nigeria never thought they would meet death on that day. None of us is better than any of those people. If you think you are alive because you are ‘more righteous’ or possess some form of invincibility which protects you from death, you are deluded. When your time comes, the only thing you can be is ready.If you are not ready, you will have only yourself to blame. This little piece is about being ready when our time comes.

In Luke 12:15, Jesus said, ‘Take heed and beware of covetousness. A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things which he possesses.’ Our lives should have both earthly and eternal value. Our earthly value is our contribution to the men and women we come across on our journey. Our eternal value is our spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

To pursue material things and money at the expense of your soul is foolish. There should be more to your life than the acquisition of money and material stuff. You should have a well grounded and functional relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ that gives you peace of mind, in this life, and when death comes calling, in the world to come. Your life should serve a greater purpose than just running after money. The only one I know who can give your life purpose is Jesus Christ. If you haven’t made the decision to make him your Lord, make it now. Now is the only time you have to make this important decision. There are no guarantees of tomorrow.

Blessings.

    as for me and my household we shall not die but live to declare the works of the LORD

    • This is part of ‘avoidance mentality.’ We all will die someday. That is a fact. What you should focus on is living your purpose now. Of course, this does not in any way rule out our scriptural guarantee of divine protection.
