We are all going to die.
What a weird and slightly disturbing thought. But it’s true.
Today I went for coffee with some fellow YITSers which was followed by op-shopping where I bought the best sheet EVER…well actually I have bought another similar to it but we’ll overlook that tiny little detail. I was in a good mood overall. I had to catch the train so I walked to the station. Of course, me being me (I HATE being late) I was about 15 mins early for the train. So I had plenty of time to observe the people around me. There was a huge variety of people there and then all of a sudden I thought: You are all going to die one day. It was sad. Especially since I was listening to a pretty sad song (well the music was sad) – ‘Ode to Divorce by Regina Spektor.
God must be so heart broken. There are so many people who don’t know him and are choosing not to know him. I felt for him. I felt like crying…it was weird.
On Soul Survivor, we concentrated a lot on God’s presence. I realised at that train station, that He was there. He was there as I waited in the rain, he was there when I was on the train (hey that rhymes) and he was there when I was on a cramped bus filled with noisy school kids.
Our time is so short on this earth and there are so many people who a practically crying out for a savior. As Christians it is our responsibility to share God’s word and help those in need. As James 2:26 says “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.”
Let’s get our gosh darn acts together and do what we were made to do!
