It is quite surprising the only thing, which people don’t plan for is death. But did you know that everything in this world keeps changing? Whether you’ll have that child or not, it is a probability. Whether you’ll make it in this life or not, it is a chance. Nothing is constant in this world except death. Even scientists have come out to say that the so-called constants of physics change slightly. I’ve even found that time is not constant even though it keeps ticking at the same pace i.e. some seconds are longer/shorter than others.
In spite of all these, very few people plan their death. Being a son of a soldier, I know that military men write their ‘wills’ before going out on a peacekeeping mission. Because you know what, you never know whether you will come back alive or dead. But in the face of all this, death does not stop these soldiers from doing their work; they work like they’ve got full life ahead of them.
Now death is not an end, it is the means to a continuing life. Death in itself is not a full stop; it is a comma where you pause, so you can continue with your journey. Being a Christian, death is the transit point between this world and the next, between this life and the next. When you die, you move away from this world and enter into either heaven or hell. How you lived your life determines where you’ll go, even if you received Jesus Christ (Hebrews 6:4-6; Revelation 20:15). Like as some say, we are sojourners in this world. Death is our passageway from this earth to the new earth. On the other hand, birth is the passageway from God to this earth; we all come from God.
If you were to die today, how would you live your life? Would you abort all the plans you have made, or you’ll continue them. From childhood, I never envisioned a long life. This even worsened when 11 years ago the Holy Ghost told me I was some special figure in the bible. Thank goodness for some people who told me that this world has continued since people started proclaiming Jesus is coming back. I may be only 30 years old now but I see to a very old age where most of my peers would have been gone, and I would still be thinking about life.
This is just to prod your mind and consciences to live a righteous life if you are a believer. If you are an unbeliever, perhaps it is time you started considering your ways, how it would help you. No matter how smart you are, you can never cheat death, let alone God. When it’s time for you to die, you will surely die. Be wise and save yourself from harm whilst you have the chance. God bless you.
