A Personal Plea

Late last night, after the Colts beat the Giants, I lay in bed and thought about September 11, 2001.  The night before those events, the people who would die, rested, just as I was doing.  Only those on a suicide mission had any idea that this would be their last night on earth.  The events that transpired that took so many lives and affected us all were incomprehensible.  If someone had come up with a movie script that followed the events of that day, the script would have been returned as unbelievable.  And even today we have a hard time coming to terms with what happened.  But those who lost their lives, they had no idea that this was their last day on earth, that they were living their last hours.  And when some did realize it, albeit at the very end, they contacted loved ones.  Had they known that day was their last, would things have been done differently the night before, the Sunday before, the weeks before?

 

That’s an important question to ask, because none of us have the assurance of tomorrow.  Chances are, most of us will die in some way other than by the hands of terrorists (unless, of course, the courts and liberals continue to interfere with military matters and we all come under some biological attack).  Every day when we get up and every night when we go to bed, eternity could be waiting for us and the question to be answered is - are we ready to go?  Are we ready to stand before God and give an account of our lives?  What will we say when He asks, “Why should I let you in heaven?” 

 

If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and savior, I pray that you will ask for forgiveness of your sins and ask Jesus to come into your heart.  If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
