I am posting this for no reason other than it captures, ever so poignantly, the transient nature of life. I will one day die. So will you. It is from dust that we have been taken, and it is to dust we shall return. You can take that to the bank. After that, we will face the judgement seat of Christ so that we may be recompensed for deeds done in the body, whether good or bad. At that point there will not be a solitary thing that will matter save the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. For those found in Christ, this is good news. For those outside of Christ, nothing or no one will have the power to deliver you from eternal damnation. My question: Are you ready?
Let the worldlings have the world, and make the most
of it! I will never envy their prosperity, for it is but for a
moment, and then, like a passing scene in a drama,
disappears forever! Their feet stand on slippery places,
and in due time their steps will slide! And then, all their
music, their mirth, and their wine will cease forever! And
when they sink, they will rise no more. They plunge into
a horrible abyss, where no ray of hope ever enters!
Oh, their end, their dreadful end!
“Vengeance belongs to Me; I will repay. In time their
foot will slip, for their day of disaster is near, and
their doom is coming quickly!” Deuteronomy 32:35
(Archibald Alexander, 1772-1851)
