Life is Short

This morning I was sitting at McDonalds having breakfast with my 'Sunday Morning Crew' talking. We were minus some people and so we didn't do our Bible Study, we just talked.

Well, a little ways into the conversation my friend noticed a 'little old man' on a mo-ped and we noted how cute he was. He looked to be about 70ish. He was just being as polite as he could be in the parking lot.

A few minutes later, there were all kinds of sirens racing around. There was an ambulance, fire truck/rescue truck and we noticed that they were stopping across the street from the McDonalds.

We decided to drive by on our way home -morbid curiosity :(. Well, when we did, we noticed the little red mo-ped sitting there on the side of the road and the little old man laying on the road. They strapped him to the back board and loaded him in the ambulance.

The point of this story?

We saw him not 5 minutes before he was struck by a car. I don't know if he is going to live or die; but, it just took one moment to stop everything in his life.

My question is this: When this moment happens for you, will you be ready? Will you be ready to look into the face of God and stand accountable for either knowing Jesus or not knowing Him.

I don't mean relying on a church, a religion, a certain book, a certain person, or anything else. I am talking about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the one true Son of the Living God.

Do you know Him?

I would like to say Yes, but am I really ready?
Makes you think.

I'm ready. I wouldn't want to leave my family just yet, but it's my hope that they truly rejoice for me when I go!

What a moving moment. It all brings things into prospective.
We never know what will happen, but if Heavenly Father is with us we can be in his arms when the time comes. M
