Don’t roll your eyes at me. This is important!
I believe in the Rapture and I believe it is imminent. But really … if you are a believer, you should not need to believe either of these things to know that you need to be ready to meet Our Lord at a moment’s notice.
Anyone could die at any moment, with no warning.
- I had a cousin who was feeling a little off, but nothing that made him concerned enough to see his doctor. When his wife woke in the morning, his body was cold.
- I had a friend who was driving his grandson somewhere; obviously he felt fine or he would never have been behind the wheel, particularly not with a child in the car. He started to feel bad, so pulled off the highway and died.
- My girlfriend’s mom was visiting a friend. She put her head back on the couch and died.
- My childhood pastor was hale and hearty. He had a headache one afternoon, so laid down for a nap and died.
Don’t wait to get 100% right with the Lord. If you’re Catholic, get your butt into the confessional. If you’re not Catholic, do whatever it is you do the examine your conscience and clear the slate.
