Good Morning......... This day is a Gift from God. We are not to squander it in any way, shape or form. Time is promised to NO ONE!!! It is with a heavy heart that I write today............. A QUICK NOTE: I won't be writing tomorrow, but I will be back bright and early on Friday.
You know by now, that I am a sports nut. Football is at the top of my list. I especially love College football. I love following players all through college, and then play in the NFL. This past Saturday was no different. It is ALL DAY COLLEGE FOOTBALL DAY!!!!! But, last night, something happened that I can't fathom.
Jordan Wiggins, age 18, a Freshman at Georgia Southern, died. I wouldn't mention his name, but I just watched him play on Saturday!!! My heart is burdened, because like I said, TIME IS NOT PROMISED!!!!! We are literally ONE BREATH away from dying. Dying is not for the old.
Do this with me for a moment: Just sit and breathe. Pay close attention to every breath IN, and every breath OUT.................... Now, pause everything and count your heartbeats................... We kind of take it for granted, don't we? One day - SOMEDAY - we will exhale our last breath on this earth, and our very first inhale after, we will be standing before God.
Let me ask you this. How will you be found by God at the end of your life? There are only 2 ways you WILL be found - WITH or WITHOUT JESUS!!! There will be no more chances, no hoping, no wishing. What you choose to do with Jesus in your life NOW, determines your Eternal Destiny! Eternity has NO END. And, because sin cannot enter Heaven, God will have no other choice but to honor your decision. "OH GOD, just give me ONE MORE CHANCE!"
If YOU took your last breath on this earth today, are you certain where you will spend Eternity? If a single spec of doubt is in your answer, stop what you are doing, and RUN TO JESUS FAST AND HARD!!! He died so you could LIVE! And, without the shedding of His Blood, there would be no chance for Forgiveness of sins. And, there can't be Forgiveness without REPENTANCE!!! YOU CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT JESUS!!!!! You can't even come to God without Jesus! Jesus is the only One to make it Possible for us to do so..............
Beautiful Friend, no matter where you are or what you are doing, or even what you have done, you have the chance to come home to God! As long as there is air in your lungs. As long as there is a beat in your heart. As long as there is one ounce of willingness in you, COME!!! COME and find the Grace of God!!! YOU are at the Center of God's Heart!!! Whatever you have to Repent of, the Blood of Jesus REDEEMS!!! No amount of dirt and shame can change that. Bring all your baggage, and lay it at the Feet of Jesus! But Friend, you can only do it, while you still have......................................... TIME!!!
