A question was posed in my hearing last week and this week I am still pondering it.
If you knew you had just 8 more months to live what would you do with those 8 months?
As far as I know, I may have more than 8 months; and then again I might have LESS than 8 months. None of us are privy to the moment of our escape from this earth.
What would I do?
I think one thing would be most important to me.
It wouldn’t be traveling to places that I really would like to see.
It wouldn’t be writing that book I always wished was in me.
I think I would like to clean some things out of the attic and closets so my Babies would not be left with those tasks but that would not be the pressing matter.
This would be.
To somehow speak to each one of my children, the first and second generations of my children (all of them; by birth and by marriage); generation three. at this writing, has not yet reached what is termed, the age of accountability.
What would I want to say?
Are you ready?
Are you sure?
Are you sure you have exchanged your sins for JESUS’ Righteousness?
Are you sure that you are walking in The Truth? Are you sure you are living as Father commands?
Are you sure you can stand before GOD, give an account to Him and be not ashamed?
If you are not sure, do you want to be?
Will you at least commit to reading Your Bible?
One Book at a time, one chapter a day?
4 How happy I was to meet some of your children and find them living according to the truth, just as the Father commanded. source
Of all the things I want in this life, I want ALL my Babies to make it to Heaven. I do not want one of them to perish. Come to think of it I want no one to perish.
I want ALL to come to salvation.
I want ALL to come to trust the LORD JESUS and be delivered from the kingdom of darkness to The Kingdom of GOD.
I want no one to be lost. Not one.
So whether I have 8 months, 8 years, or much longer my mission is the same:
Are you ready?
8 Moreover, dear friends, do not ignore this: with the Lord, one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some people think of slowness; on the contrary, he is patient with you; for it is not his purpose that anyone should be destroyed, but that everyone should turn from his sins. 10 However, the Day of the Lord will come “like a thief.” On that Day the heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will melt and disintegrate, and the earth and everything in it will be burned up. source
