SCRIPTURE:“ I have fought a good fight,”I have finished my course, I have kept the faith”: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness,”which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day”:” 2 Timothy 4:7-8a.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Departing this life with minimal regrets is one of the greatest achievements of life; the matter of eternity is a matter of prime importance and urgency.
Life on earth is transient however long it lasts. There is an appointed end to the brief episode of time called lifetime on earth. That is why one of the greatest achievements of anyone on earth is to come to the end of his or her Life and be ready to depart the earth without regrets.
As a young medical doctor,”I came across several persons that at the point of exit from life were not ready to depart.
It was Bishop T. D. Jakes who told the story of his father who was diagnosed of a terminal disease. As life was ebbing out of him, he told his son”: “Son,”all these years, I have been trying to figure out what life is all about; now that I thought I have known what life is, there is no time to live the life anymore.” Pathetic!
The fact is”: You do not have eternity to fulfill destiny. The matter of eternity is a matter of prime importance and urgency. Many people squandered their lives on vanity,”and realized that when it was time to really live, there was no time to live again.
Beloved, departing this life with minimal regrets is one of the greatest achievements of life.
The questions you should consistently ask yourself are”: am I ready for eternity? The way I am living my life now,”is Christ pleased with me? If the trumpet should sound now, where would be my eternal destination? Is it eternity in heaven with God or eternity in hell with the devil? Think about it!
REMEMBER THIS”: Departing this life with minimal regrets is one of the greatest achievements of life; the matter of eternity is a matter of urgency.
