“For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away” (Jam. 4:14).
Are you aware that more than 150,000 people die daily on average? Tomorrow will never come for countless thousands. Moreover the majority of these have no clue that their earthly life is about to end. What if tomorrow never comes for you or me?
IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES I WANT TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT I AM SAVED. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). Moreover He commanded us to believe in Him – John 8:24, repent of our sins - Luke 13:3,5, confess His name before others – Matt. 10:32, and be baptized – Mark 16:16. Have you given your life to Jesus and obeyed His commands?
IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES I WANT TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT I AM FAITHFUL TO CHRIST. Revelation 2:10 states, “Be FAITHFUL until death, and I will give you the crown of life.” “Faithful” means to be persistent, steadfast, obedient to the end. Jesus said, "No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God" (Luke 9:62). Are you still faithful to Jesus Christ?
IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES I WANT TO BE BUSY SERVING THE LORD. The apostle Paul urged, “…be steadfast, immovable, ALWAYS ABOUNDING in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Cor. 15:58). He added, “…let us not grow weary while DOING GOOD, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” (Gal. 6:9) Are you serving the Lord every day?
IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES I WANT TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT I AM A LIGHT TO MY FAMILY & FRIENDS. Jesus said, "Let your LIGHT SO SHINE before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:16). Paul added, "Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ" (1 Cor. 11:1). Do I want my loved ones to follow the example I am setting for them?
We need to be prepared for the possibility that tomorrow may never come. Are you? If not, do something about it TODAY!
Jesus, always Jesus!
