We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8
I am what you could call a ‘coaster enthusiast’. I just absolutely love roller coasters the scarier the better. Thing is, even though I love them, it is always a little frightening going on one for first time and not anticipating that first drop at top of a very high, and often times steep, track. Then whoosh off you plummet.
Even though as a believer in Christ you know not to fear death some people often wonder what it will be like. Similar to what to expect on those roller coaster drops, many do not really know. Why be concerned? If you love Jesus and have asked Him into your heart once you die suddenly you will be in heaven. No more worries about earthly concerns but just enveloped in the peacefulness of heaven.
Do you know that if you breathed your last breath, got hit head on and died, had a heart attack, sudden onset of cancer or another disease that you have the assurance of heaven? It is not about church membership or a particular denomination. It is not about how good your are. It is about knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and savior and asking Him to be Lord of your life.
PRAYER: I pray today for those people reading this who may be uncertain of their salvation. Satan would have us worry and even deceive us into thinking we are okay when in reality it is time to repent and ask Jesus to take the controls. Bring conviction on those who need to let Jesus be Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
