Greg Laurie — What If This Were Your Last Year on Earth?
They say more than 100 people die every minute of every day. But we don't know when our lives will come to an end. Pastor Greg Laurie wants to know if you're prepared. We'll get our lives in order so we can be ready for the unexpected.
People are always trying to figure out how to live longer. But God has an appointed day for our birth and also for our death. In fact, we are told in Job 14:5, “You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live and we are not given a minute longer.”
Hebrews 9:27 says, “It is appointed unto a man once to die and after this comes the judgment.” And then Psalm 39:4 says, “Lord remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered and my life is fleeing away.”
So I have a question for you. What if this were your last year on earth? How would you live your life? Would you live it any differently?
When it comes down to it, there are three things that we can offer to God in this life: We can offer our treasure. We can offer our talent. And we can offer our time. Are you living like this is your last year on earth? It could be the last year for all of us, because the Lord Himself could come and call His people home in the rapture of the church. Give God your treasure, talent, and time while you still can.
