Now is the Time

The shooting at Virginia Tech, a senseless, stupid, heartbreaking tragedy. Young men and women cut down in the flower of their youth. A stark reminder that we live in a fallen and sinful world and even more solemn reminder of the fragility of life.

As I pray for the families of those young men and women, I cannot help but wonder and hope, did they know Him? Did they accept and put their trust in Him? If so then they are now safe in their Savior's arms and "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain..."
Revelation 21:4

If not, it is now too late to make a choice...

So I pose this question to my readers, if your heart was to stop beating tomorrow could you honestly say you are ready to meet Him?

Do you know Him? Have you searched to know Him, acknowledged, accepted and received Him?

Maybe you have thought about "it," searching, knowing Him
If so Now is the time my friend, Now is the time...
If not, Now is the time my friend, Now is the time...

[Remember your Creator earnestly now] before the silver cord [of life] is snapped apart, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern [and the whole circulatory system of the blood ceases to function];
Ecclesiastes 12:6

All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.
1 Peter 1:24-25

Seek the LORD while He may be found,Call upon Him while He is near.
Isaiah 55:6
