and 9 fatalities thus far are children.
It seems, that since our minor car accident occurred nearly 2 months ago. .
Compelled to an urgency to talk to people about their relationship with the Lord. .
One point that I have been compelled to talk to the high school kids lately has been this. .
Look at your life. .
Look at what you accomplish in a day or in a week. .
How much time are you spending in your prayer life. .
or reading that instruction book written by God called. .
Are you talking to people?
Showing others what a child of God looks like?
Digging deeper into a relationship with the Lord?
Is Jesus Christ a priority in your life??
Because if He isn't. .
You may not be a priority of His on the last day either!!
In the wake of a tragedy. .
In a world whose headlines are filled with tragedies of increasing magnitude WEEKLY. .
I challenge you. .
the one on the other side of this screen TODAY. .
RIGHT NOW. .
I challenge YOU. .
to quickly take an account of your time. .
right now. .
If you are spending an hour or less per week in your relationship with God. .
1/168 of your week praying. .
sitting on a church pew. .
studying your bible. .
pursuing a deeper knowledge about the One who holds eternity in the palm of His hand. .
I suggest to you. .
Make some changes in your life!!!
Hear me say. .
I'm NOT suggesting that your eternity rests on how MUCH time you spend. .
but if you aren't committed to spending TIME. .
You may want to consider. .
Pouring more time into carrying out GOD'S agenda for your life. .
and spending LESS time on your own agenda. .
Because in that split second when MY time on earth could have ended. .
MY agenda seemed awfully miniscule in the eternal scheme of things!
And many of the multiple activities that I engage myself in. .
would have had very LITTLE effect on HOW I spend eternity. .
don't make an eternal mistake of your priorities. .
Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The people that were most affected by the disastrous tornado near Oklahoma City. .
woke up yesterday just like you did today. .
planning for a regular, same 'ole- same 'ole day!
Pray for those hurting people. .
And give some thought toward your eternity. .
and the One who makes that possible. .
For tomorrow. .
your regularly planned day. .
might take you by surprise!!
If you aren't sure how to take the steps needed to ensure your eternal salvation. .
please contact me. .
I'd love to walk you through the process!!
Blessings to you all!!
I have some garden happenings coming up. .
but this subject just weighed on my heart to address today!
