MESSAGE SUMMARY: Most of us don’t like to think about and plan for death, especially our own. However, Paul in. Romans 6:23, made our life and death position very clear: “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.". As part of our preparations for eternity, we should take one time each year to evaluate and to reflect on our position for facing death and realizing eternal life by identifying those changes we must make in our lives and in our relationship with God. This preparation for our death will be a blessing for us and our families. Are we prepared to face our death? Will we have eternal life? What about those we leave behind – are we being good stewards? Also, what about our families; are they prepared for their earthly death and to receive eternal life? In Matthew 28:18, Jesus gave us His Great Commission for our life focus: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.". Have we followed Jesus’ Great Commission, for our own families, by making disciples of our family members?
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: Today, I affirm that, because I am in Jesus Christ, I will serve others. (Philippians 2:3f). “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”. (Philippians 4:14).
