Seven years ago yesterday the weekend began quite normally in...

Behold, now is the day of salvation.

Prepare to meet your God.

2 Corinthians 6:2; Amos 4:12.

Seven years ago yesterday the weekend began quite normally in Paris. Restaurant terraces, concert halls, stadiums were full of people seeking enjoyment and relaxation. Then in the course of the evening a series of brutal terror attacks caused the death of 130 people, many of them still young.

Some days later a day of state mourning was held with a service of remembrance in the Dôme des Invalides. For a period of ten minutes there was utter silence while the names of the victims were read out. Listening, many of those present thought that they themselves might have been among them.

It was a solemn moment, in which the earnest question arose: what comes after death? Nothing? Annihilation? Indeed not! Eternity? Certainly!

God confirms it in the Bible – eternity awaits each one of us either in His presence in light, or far removed from Him in darkness and torment.

Am I ready to meet God? Our life can end at any moment, even in everyday situations. And the question of what and where we shall be in eternity must be decided now, while we are still alive. Let us therefore listen to what God says. He invites us to believe in Jesus Christ, who loved us and Himself underwent the punishment for lost sinners.

God’s invitation is thus an urgent matter, for “now is the day of salvation”. Whether we shall have the chance to be converted tomorrow we do not know.

Today’s reading: Ecclesiastes 7:15-29 · Mark 6:14-20

Whoever touches the body of anyone who has died, and does not purify himself… That person shall be cut off from Israel. He shall be unclean, because the water of purification was not sprinkled on him.

GOD HAS A SUBSTITUTE
Open Heavens

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

GOD HAS A SUBSTITUTE

One thing we need to learn in today’s reading is that God always has a substitute. If God says He wants you, rejoice! However, be careful, because even as He is choosing you, He has already prepared a substitute. 1 Samuel 2:27-30 tells us about Eli. God chose Eli and his family to serve Him. God later...More
