Being on a barrier island with no bridge can be challenging when you have health issues. We have a neighbor that just found out that he has congestive heart failure. He and his wife are from a northern state and because of his health concern, they are not able to fly back home. An issue came up and gave cause for concern, so his wife took him to the hospital while our ferry was still running and we picked them up in our boat later that night after the hospital said they weren’t going to keep him. It was challenging for them to get in and out of the boat because as you get older, things just don’t work like they used to. When you're younger, you think that an island in Florida would be the ideal place to retire, but you don’t consider the deterioration of your body. Our bodies are only good for so long, however, our soul is meant to live forever. We should be more concerned with our ultimate retirement than we are. Don’t wait until you’re old to start living for Jesus. Most people that come to know Him later in life regret waiting so long and feel that they have wasted too many years in unbelief. If you haven’t turned your life over to Jesus and accepted His free gift of eternal life with Him, it’s time! All you have to do is trust Him and believe that He is who He says He is.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:16-18
