According to the scriptures, life on earth is described in the following ways:

Psalm 90: 5a-6, In the morning they are like grass which groweth up. In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

Psalms 144:4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

Psalm 103:14-16 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. 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 is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

Isaiah 40:6b-7 All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.

James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

1 Peter 1:24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

Hopefully, these verses reveal to all who read them that life on this earth is a short pilgrimage; thus, what you do while living on it matters.

There are those that believe in reincarnation, and others believe after death, if you end up in purgatory, your family can pray for your release from there. However, Hebrew 9:27 states, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Readers, there is no do-over; you go into God’s presence or hell once you die. So, the question is, “Are you ready?”

Daily, young and older people die accidentally, tragically, unexpectantly, prematurely, and intentionally. People are here today and gone today. The next moment is not promised to any of us. So, why are people hesitating to choose to serve God? The answer may be found in Paul’s word to the Corinthian church, “ The god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” Let us pray that we are not found in this group for others and ourselves.

Choosing to serve God and become a citizen in His kingdom provides us with earthly benefits and makes us eligible for eternal life beyond with Him. I assure you this is what you want, and your answer to “Are you ready” will be a resounding “Yes.”
