3 John 4, Isaiah 61:3, Job 7, Romans 8:28, Job – Life is serious and short. You can live a life of pleasure committed to sinful things or you can live a life dedicated to Christ and to the church.
When we are born we all have a specific number of days assigned us. For some that number is large. For others that number is not very large.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
All that matters, the only thing that matters, is whether we know God as our personal Lord and Savior.
2 Corinthians 5:10 – For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
If you are counting the cost, please quit counting and surrender your life to God. There is no other way that we can get enter the pearly gates of heaven.
