You better live every day like it’s your last because one day you’re going to be right. (Ray Charles, late American singer, songwriter)
Most of us probably don’t live with that thought in mind very often. We go about living as if there is no end to it. We shouldn’t live with some kind of morbid attitude and fear that today might be our last. But, if the Bible is right that “each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment,” we should be giving some thought to our eternal future as well life today.
God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him (1 John 4:9).
