I have just started reading “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn. Naturally heaven is something that I am passionate about as this is where Riley, among many of our other loved ones, resides now. I just came across this passage in the book and feel compelled to share it:
We dare not “wait and see” when it comes to what’s on the other side of death. We shouldn’t just cross our fingers and hope that our names are written in the Book of Life (Revelation 31:27). We can know, we should know, before we die. And because we may die at any time, we need to know now - not next month or next year....
The voice that whispers, “There’s no hurry; put this book down; you can always think about it later,” is not God’s voice. He says, “Now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2) and “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve” (Joshua 24:15).
Please, take heed of this passage. If you have not made the decision to live for God, remember that life can be taken from you at anytime, very possibly when you least expect it. I am not trying to scare anyone or get up on a soapbox to preach to anyone, I just know, unfortunately from personal experience, that this is very true. I urge you to think about who you want to serve when your time comes.
As for me, I know that I want to serve God in heaven with my sweet angel Riley...
