This morning i have been thinking about what i saw in the news yesterday. Any kind of killing is heart breaking. But for me, yesterday’s shooting in Texas was close home. I don’t live in America but myself and my family go to church to worship and we don’t miss sunday services. This made it hit home. The thought of going into the presence of God and being killed there. The thought of going into the house of God where protection should be guaranteed but yet, it becomes a place where dead bodies are being identified. The thought of going into church with anxiety in hope of laying it at God’s feet but living with a broken heart. The thought of going into church as a complete family and leaving incomplete. All of these thoughts makes my heart heavy.
However it’s reminded me again, that tomorrow is not guaranteed. No one knows his or her last day on earth. Death can happen anytime, anywhere. So it’s very important for us to live every minute for God as though it’s our last. I’m sure those people who died had plans for the day. Sunday is considered as family day by most people. Dinners were cancelled. Appointments and meetings postponed indefinitely due to another hit of tragedy.
As a believer, are you postponing that thing that God has been telling you to do? Do you think it’s best you do it tomorrow. The work of our master requires urgency. This has woken me up again. My pastor is very passionate about evangelism and for some time, it’s been on my heart to do more in this area. It’s time for it to go from the being on my heart zone to me actually doing it.
Those people who died don’t have the chance to do anything anymore. It can be argued but i believe that as a believer our time is in God’s hand and He can call us home anytime whether when we are young or old. Let’s not get so comfortable settling in this earth that we forget we will be leaving someday. We are here to trade and we will be going home when the market closes to give account to our maker on how well we traded.
Don’t get comfortable and complacent that you forget to do what God has assigned to you. Don’t be carried away doing things that don’t really matter to the point where you forget the major thing that matters. Use today wisely.
Praying for the families of the victims and the body of Christ in general🙏🏾
