The scripture for today, January 11 (1/11), is 2nd Peter 1:11 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
How often do you forget that earth is not your home? As an old gospel song says, “We’re just traveling through.” Do you really believe that?
If someone told you tomorrow you were going to die, would you go into a panic? Would you beg God to let you live another ten or twenty years? Would you feel this was the beginning of the end?
To a true Christian, your dying is the end of the beginning. You have a whole “life” ahead of you in heaven. A never-ending life. Do you live like you believe it? Will you die looking forward to it?
Are you even a Christian yet? What is your life like? Do you even know what is in the Bible, God’s messages to you? Does the thought of heaven sound boring to you? Do you even like God?
Stop and listen to the empty place in your heart (Ecclesiastes. 3:11). Do you hear it? Shhh. Listen… God is calling you.
