You Are Going to Die

You are going to die.

It’s inevitable.

It’s will happen. Today, tomorrow, or soon, very soon, you are going to die.

Our time on earth is short.  If you live to 70 days or 70 years, it is short. Yet, we live our lives every day thinking we are immortal. We believe our time for the undertaker will never come but it is coming and it is coming soon.

The Psalmist said:

“LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered, and that my life is fleeing away. My life is no longer than the width of my hand. An entire lifetime is just a moment to you; human existence is but a breath.”  Psalm 39:4-5 NLT

We are here today and gone tomorrow so how should we live?

We should turn our whens into nows. This is the day the Lord has made. We need to cease the opportunity now.  Do what we should be doing now.  Live our life on purpose now. We do not know what tomorrow will bring yet we boast about tomorrow.  Simple talk.  Let’s us turn our words into action and live for today.

We should turn our intentions into actions.  The Bible declares:

Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins. James 4:17

You have been meaning to do the right thing. You have had great intentions yet you have fallen short over and over again.  Proverbs says:

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor,” Come back later; I’ll give it tomorrow” — when you now have it with you. Proverbs 3:27

We must live everyday living for our eulogy and not for our resume. Be eternally focused and not temporarily focused.

You are going to die.


What are you doing to today for your eternity?

Have you made Jesus Lord?  Have you made Him Lord over your whole life? Today is the day of salvation. Make him Lord now.  You will spend eternity in one of two places and it all depends who is Lord over your life . . . Now. You are not promised the next second.
