Sudden Death

I vividly remember the day I flew to Detroit and phoned a friend of mine. The last I had heard from him was through a letter in which he wrote, “Luis, when you get to Detroit, call me first thing!” So I did … only to find shocking news. He and his wife were killed in an airplane crash just one week earlier. That was very very hard news to receive.

Only God knows how many days we will have on this earth. Death can happen at any time – through an accident, through disease, or through old age. And because we never know when death will take anyone, we must maximize each day we are alive. We must make the most of every opportunity to share about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Not out of panic, but with the realization that time might be running out.

It is every believers privilege to share the Word of God! As the Bible says, we must be diligent in “redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Who in your life needs to know Jesus Christ? Pray for that person. Then, pursue an opportunity to tell them the Good News. Reaching our world happens just one person at a time.
