Still in dire need of a car. Appreciate your prayers for that!
Wow, in the past week Michael Jackson, Farrah Fauwcett, and Ed McMahon all died. They all worked so hard to acquire wealth and recognition. Jackson is reported to be worth over $236 million. Guess what? He didn't take a penny with him, and all of his fame only caused him problems. None of us is taking anything with us when we die. The only thing we can do to have anything on the other side is how we have treated Christ in the other person. Self sacrifice now is the key to position on the other side. Jesus said it this way, "He who seeks to save his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My name's sake shall find it.
The truth is that your body is only a bag holding the real you. We are spirit beings inhabiting fleshy bodies. This body is disposable, and easily destroyed.
It sure is easy to die. A guy was sitting in a barbar shop this morning in Auburn, getting a nice friendly haircut. Suddenly, a car came crashing through the wall and got him. Eternity is here and now. The Kingdom of Heaven is within each of us. Lets go it all the way. Put on Christ or go to hell!
