Life at it’s best is very brief. Though people say life has three stages: the morning (prime), afternoon (middle), and twilight (old age), there is no guarantee that a person would live through all the stages. Life can terminate at any time, any stage and any age. Some people die, even before they are born; some people die in their prime, and some die in their old age, whatever time, stage, or age a person dies, the truth about life is that it is transient. As the psalmist puts it, life is just like a flower or a blade of glass-lush blooming, flourishing this moment and suddenly fades away without a trace the next moment.
“As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth, for the wind passeth over it, and it’s gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more (psalm 103:15-16) James also compared the ephemeral existence of life to a vapor or steam, it is steaming this moment and disappears the next moment: for what is your life, it is even as a vapor, that appeareth for a little time and then vanisheth away(James 4:44) The short life of humans leaves you as an individual to grapple with two essential questions.
Have you accepted Jesus as your savior and ready for heaven? And are you using your fleeting days to please him? If your answers are not in the affirmative, no matter what your age is, you need pause right now and consider you eternal destiny, because life is short and may terminate at any time; you must live every moment of your life with eternity in view. Live as if today were your last. Never make the mistake of thinking that tomorrow is all yours. All you have is NOW! What you do with your life now largely determines where you will spend eternity-live for Jesus or leave Jesus out of your life and be doomed for ever in hell. What is it going to be? Your life is fast running out, and you are standing on the brick of eternity.
Give Jesus a place in your heart right now before it is too late! The scripture enjoins” seek ye the lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near, let the wicked forsake his ways, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God for he will abundantly pardon”(Isaiah 55:6 ) make haste now, repent of your sins and spend the remaining part of your life wisely to serve God and humanity, remember , our vigour is fleeting; our best years are brief , our youth passes quickly-times ever a thief; but hope yet becomes us-death stings holds on power; we have a redeemer an unfailing Tower.
