Today, I was reminded that we do not hold tomorrow. Life is so short and just a vapor.
A young man was found dead in his bed, just 24 years old. A life so full of the blessings of a new job, an even better job on the horizon. Yet, at 24 years of age has gone home to be with the Lord.
Kinda sets the stage for a sad morning. A sad morning for his family. A sad morning for his church friends and family. How does one reconcile it? We can’t. But God can.
This young man was so full of hope of the home he had in heaven I am sure. He was full of life, as I remember him. He got sober in 2010. I remember him going soul winning on Saturdays. He played with the teens during teen stuff. He was always at church when the doors were open. He is a good kid. God got a good one. I did not really talk to John much. He runs with the younger crowd. I ran with the moms. Ya know? But whenever we greeted, he always smiled and always shook my hand. He always had a nice thing to say, about the service, about the weather or about one of my kids.
We do not hold tomorrow. Our life is a vapour. What are we doing for God? What are you doing? What am I doing? Are we going to make our life count?
James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
Do you know who holds the future? Do you know you CAN have a home in heaven. Heaven is waiting for you, but, so is hell. We can know where our future is.
