Everyone's Destiny

"It is better to go to a house of mourning
than to go to a house of feasting,
for death is the destiny of every man;
the living should take this to heart" (Ecclesiastes 7:2).

Until Jesus Christ returns, everyone will die.

I thought about that today as I attended the memorial service of a 35-year old mother who died in a motorcycle wreck last weekend.

We do not know our time. It could happen at an old age or a young age. It could happen at any moment.

So the important question arises: How will I face God?

At, I have outlined a Bible lesson intended to help people who are interested in connecting with God. It explains our common problem of sin, our hope in Jesus Christ, and how we get to respond to his offer of a new life empowered by his Spirit. I would like for everyone to have the opportunity to know Christ in this life and to be prepared for the next. Who knows how long we have?
