August 28

Are we in the last of the last days? Whether we are or not, our own life may be in its last days, hours, minutes, or even seconds. Are you worthy to enter the kingdom of Heaven? I was at dinner with a friend who told a story of a woman whose husband had died. The woman was asked if he was saved, and she couldn’t answer the question, because she didn’t know. Sometime before the funeral she had a dream, she saw him lying on the operating table where the doctors were trying to revive him. Over his body was seething demons who were waiting, and as he took his last breath, they tore his body from limb to limb. She was then able to say that he didn’t make it into heaven. Even though it was a dream, how would you like it if, upon your death, your family saw you dragged away by evil beings? What a horrible image! We have a just God, and if you don’t live your life to perfection, you will end up separated from Him. It is impossible to live a perfect life, but with Jesus, it is possible. He perfects us by cleansing us with His blood, and hides us within Himself, so that only His perfection is seen, and not our sin. Have you accepted His free gift of eternal life? If you're still on the fence, ask Him to show you who He is. He will.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, Ephesians 1:7
