Whatcha going to do? Because I tell you, Time is Running Out, says the Lord! Don’t think that you have forever to make up your mind, because you don’t! Make your eternal salvation secure TODAY! What is your life? It is like a flower that comes forth and then withers. [Job 14:2]. It is like a mist that appears for a little time then vanishes. [James 4:14]. Listen, life is uncertain. There are no guarantees. You may die tonight. Don’t gamble with your soul. Tomorrow is not a promise. Now, I have set before thee, life and death, whatcha going to do?
I tell you, we tend to take life for granted. We assume tomorrow is a given. All we have for certain is TODAY. The Bible warns that every human being is subject to sudden death. No one has the promise of another day or hour. As [Amos 6:1] warns “woe to you who are complacent in Zion.” God will “deliver up the city and everything in it.”[verse 8].
Look, according to [WorldOMeter and Medindia ] it is estimated that approximately 150,000 people die daily. People who died yesterday had plans just like us. But unfortunately, they did not live to see those plans. The “Parable of the Rich Man” [Luke 12:16–21] who stored food in his barns, ate, drank, and felt complacent about tomorrow. What happened to him? God said, “You fool, tonight I will take your life from you.”
I beseech you to accept God’s offer of life. The choice He gives is a choice that will affect how you live your life in the NOW and where you will spend eternity in the FUTURE, whether in HEAVEN or HELL. Take advantage of the opportunities God’s grace provides. Joshua said, “Choose for yourselves THIS DAY whom you will serve.” [Joshua 24:15]. Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; but I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.” [John 10:10].
I tell you, “NOW is the time of God’s favor, NOW is the day of salvation.” [2 Corinthians 6:1-2]. You need to choose, and it is URGENT! Jesus Christ is coming back. [Matthew 24:44] says, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Understand the present time. Salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.” [Romans 13:11-12]. “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise, but as wise, making the most of every opportunity.” [Ephesians 5:15-20].
“But if your heart turns away and you do not hear, but are led astray… I declare to you today that you shall perish. I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.” [Deuteronomy 30:15-20]
This is the Word of the Lord!
“As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” [Joshua 24:15]
