You know growing up you dont really understand the brevity of life. I know I certainly didn’t. I had a best friend in High School until probably my senior year thst was my bud. We’d met in choir freshman year and both moved up in choir basically together. She was smarter than me though. I can still remember her yelling at me for getting grounded again for something stupid and foolish I had done at home. I was sad that we’d ended HS on such a bad note. She wanted nothing to do with me. When Christ changed my heart after the car accident I had in between my 11th and 12th grade year, my whole viewpoint of life changed. She was very much against God. Who knew that years later, in her early 30’s she would’ve passed away? I still to this day wonder if she’d died knowing Christ or not? I was a bad representative of Him in HS. I could’ve had an impact for Him with my friends if I would’ve known Him intimately.
Life is so brief. Dont waste it with having to be right about everything. It’s not about the size of your IRA or about what you have or dont have. Use your time to love others into the Kingdom. Take chances. Share Christ with people because you just dont know when a friend or family member will depart from this world. You want to make sure they know thier eternal life is spent on the right side. Point those you have contact with to Him. Because once this life is over thats it. And when it all boils down to it that’s all that really matters.
It starts with your inner man. What are you feeding yourself? And where is it gonna lead you to? Do you have enough of Him to share? And is He truly reigning to make a difference to those around you?
