When Eternity Calls

I was saddened to hear the news that a dear friend’s husband had suddenly and unexpectedly passed away a few hours earlier.   He had been in good health, but a heart attack seized him and he could not be saved.

However, my dear friend was comforted with the knowledge that she would be reunited with her husband again one day.  Both having accepted Jesus into their hearts and lives as their Lord and Savior.

We are never promised tomorrow and do not know when we may breathe our last.

Only God knows whether we will have a long or short life.  {Job 14:5 says, “A person’s days are determined, you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed.”}

But, we are promised that if we know Christ, we will have eternal life. {John 3:16} When we accept Christ into our hearts, we are told that we will dwell with the Lord in heaven.

Philippians tells us:

For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.          {Philippians 1:21}

But our citizenship is in heaven                                  {Philippians3:20}

If you were to breathe your last today, where would you spend eternity?  Do you know my Jesus?
