“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;… For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” (1 Corinthians 15:1,3,4 KJV).
Without further delay, we need to be set to die at any moment.
All of America’s hearts are broken, saints. Over a dozen innocent teenagers were recently gunned down at their high school. Their lives were unexpectedly and tragically cut short. Fear and hopelessness dominated the voices of the survivors, their parents, and the childless parents. They had no comfort because they do not have the Lord Jesus Christ. Students are apprehensive in setting foot in public places again. One poor father said how he was still struggling to accept the fact that he will “never” see his slain daughter again. How sad indeed!
Man is attempting his best to legislate and regulate evil: many solutions are being offered to correct the problems and prevent repeats. Still, until the Lord Jesus Christ returns to set all things right, there will be no permanent, entirely effective resolution. We live in a sin-cursed world, one sated with immense pain and suffering unspeakable. Does not God care? Why does He not do something? Again, He has already appointed a time when He will punish evil. However, He is tarrying so more people can be saved into Jesus Christ.
There will be another shooting, bombing, stabbing, hijacking, and vehicular homicide. Friend, if death were to find you right now, would you go into God’s presence? Do you even know? Dear friend, whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you have done, and whatever you are going to do, do not play around with eternity. It is a long time to be wrong!
Quickly, come quickly by faith to Calvary’s cross! Jesus Christ died for your sins, He was buried, and He rose again the third day (today’s Scripture). “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31)—and be set when death finds you! 🙂
