House in Order


If you received a warning that you would die in 24 hours, how desperate would you be to insure you went to Heaven?

"This is what the LORD says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die" (Isaiah 38:1 NIV)

It is a good thing Christians don't believe in omens and fortunes, because today's verse could be taken the wrong way. This was actually news for Hezekiah. He was warned by the prophet that he would die. God actually gave him more time, but it was good to have advance warning.

All my life I have been told, however, that two things are certain in life; death and taxes. I think there is at least some truth to that saying. We are all certainly going to die. At least, I should say, these physical bodies we possess will not last forever.

Since that is true, what preparations have you made? I'm not talking about your will or your funeral plans (although it is good to have them in order as well). I'm talking about the most important step you must take to get your house in order. Where are you going to spend your eternity?

If you received a warning that you would die in 24 hours, how desperate would you be to insure you went to Heaven? Folks, most of us will not get advance warning, other than this: You are going to die. My advise is that you get your house in order!

If you aren't really sure where you stand with Jesus, pray this prayer: Dear God, I know you love me. I know I am a sinner. I have broken your laws. I believe Jesus died on the Cross, and rose from the grave, as payment for my sins. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me.

Guess what? If you have prayed that prayer, your house is in order!
