Life & Death
Wonder who will be the next to die?
Ecc 9: 7-12
Some people live to be old.
Death is the surest thing about life.
Heb 9: 27 “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement.”
Job said, “My day are swifter than a waver’s shuttle.”
James said, “Whereas ye know what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appeareth for a little time and then vanisheth away.”
We should live each day as it were our last, indeed it very well may be.
Eph 5: 14-17
So Christ teaches to live today making things right, keep things right.
“Agree with thy adversaries while it is called today.”
“Let not the sun go down on your worth.”
Gal 6: 10 “As we have there opportunity let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”

How we live now, what we do this day may determine our eternity.
Gal 6: 7-8 “Be not deceived…”
What about your life today?
