This past weekend we learned of three deaths - two elderly men from our church that have been battling cancer and also my husband's cousin who was his same age. As we sat through one of the funerals today, I was struck by the importance of knowing where you will spend eternity. Both of the men from our church loved the Lord and followed Him. We do not know for sure if my husband's cousin was a Christian or not.
I am only forty two years old, but I was struck today with getting down on paper what I would like to have done at my funeral service. Today's funeral was a celebration of a life and home going to heaven. I have been to numerous services through the years and am convinced that I want my funeral to be a celebration of the life I lived, and hopefully godly example to those around me.
So my dear bloggy friends, if you would die today, do you know how you will spend your eternity? Have you made that life altering decision to radically follow Jesus and ask Him to be Lord of your life? If you have been holding back, don't wait another day. You will not ever regret making a decision for Christ.
"From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. 'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' (Acts 17:26-28)
