I saw an evangelical movie hours ago and while they were about to behead the Pastor for bringing a strange religion to their village, He began singing with so much joy to the Lord. Ah! Youâ€™re about to die and youâ€™re so excited? I saw myself leaping for joy for Him too.
Now I realize how much Iâ€™ve grown. I used to fear death as a little girl and the thought of it irks me! But ever since I became one spirit and body with Christ, death is only the beginning of me, HALLELUJAH !!!
Iâ€™ve had moments (even several times this year) where Iâ€™ve had thoughts of death and even requested God â€œbribing Himâ€ to call me home. Iâ€™m sorry about how that may come off but who wouldnâ€™t be excited at the thought of being with Jesus in the real term?
For the believer, we have a glorious inheritance, the Joy of our ultimate salvation. This world is nothing compared to Heaven. I want to walk on that street of gold like the way Iâ€™ve been told.
While I stop this somewhat â€œuncomfortable conversationâ€ depending on how you may perceive it, I leave you with this question: How prepared are you for death? Like the preacher in the movie I watched will you be bold enough to sing songs of joy that youâ€™re about to meet the master or reverse is the case? That Joy can only be found if you have a relationship with Jesus. Not just being â€œChristianâ€ but an actual follower of Jesus. Donâ€™t even deceive yourself that youâ€™re good. Even Christians still struggle with a lot of heart issues and are work in progress. How much more is one who isnâ€™t in a relationship with God? Jesus is a perfect fixer, you donâ€™t have to â€œfix yourselfâ€ or be uninterested in being better, thereâ€™s help in CHRIST. Thatâ€™s the good news!
