Many times I’ve found myself questioning whether I should continue working hard to maintain my sanity when life’s struggles seem to always keep me from prospering. Throwing in the towel seems like the best option because it’s easier to do. However, there’s always a question I face within my struggles: ‘What if all this stuff about God is real’? Then I’m faced with the inner question of: ‘What choices do I have’?
I often challenge people with the same scenario I challenge myself with: ‘If God isn’t real, then when we die, nothing will happen, but what if He is real’? That means, when I die and find out that the story of God sending His Son, Jesus, to the cross for the sins the world was actually real, then I won’t have a chance then to change my circumstance because I chose on earth to not believe. The critical question is, is it worth taking this chance? If I stand before God then, there’s no time to repent of my sins because that’s what I died in.
This is a chance that I am unwilling to take. Although life’s struggles may seem to wear me down at times, there’s still not a day that I believe, God has not been faithful to me. I pray that you too are willing to submit and except Christ as your Lord and Savior. Because we cannot get to the Father without submitting to the Son, Jesus Christ! So, are you prepared?
“So keep a sharp lookout! For you do not know when the homeowner will return- at evening, mid-night, early dawn, or late daybreak. Don’t let him find you sleeping when he arrives without warning. What I say to you I say to everyone: Watch for his return!” (Mark 13:35-37 NLT)
