At every tick of the watch thousands of souls are hurled into eternity. As the sun rises in the morning millions are in the land of the living, some serving their Maker according to His Word, but a great number serving their own desires and the enemy of souls.
The sun goes down in the evening. Only a few hours have passed, but oh, what a change has taken place! Many thousands of precious souls have spent their final day on earth. They have crossed the last span of life and passed over the river of death where they are now waiting for the day of judgment. A few have crossed the river in peace, knowing that all was well with them and that heaven would be their future abode; but many have died in fear. Also, during this short space of time more than this number have come into existence to follow in the steps of those who have passed away. What a solemn thought-the scene in the day of judgment when “we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ,” (Rom. 14:10), “and before him shall be gathered all nations.” (Matt. 25:32)
Dear friend, are you prepared to meet God? Do you know where you will spend eternity? Take close inventory of your life today! You have no promise of tomorrow.
“Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isa. 55:6-7.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16.
