Are You Prepared to Face Eternity?

“Lord, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am.”

Psalm 39:4


Ponder This

Death is a very real subject but one we often don’t take seriously. Man is the only creature who knows he’s going to die, and he is desperately trying to forget it. If you mention death in some contexts, people will change the subject like they change the channels with their remote controls. They don’t want to talk about death. They don’t want to face death. Even though it’s something we avoid, reason tells us we’re going to die, experience tells us we’re going to die, and if you’re not prepared to die, you’re not prepared to live. No man is ever ready to live until he is no longer afraid to die.

Jesus is the master teacher. He taught that there are three great issues all of us must face. Those issues are life, death, and eternity. Everything else is a subset of those things.

  • How does being prepared to die change the way you live?
  • Why is it dangerous to avoid the subject of death?
