What is Your Life? – 10.27.08

James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

Proverbs 27:1 Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

We all know these verses are true, but every now and then we are reminded of just how true they really are.

Last night, Lauren got word that a childhood friend of hers died in a car accident over the weekend. She was 23 years old. In grad school. Had her whole life ahead of her. Or so she thought.

When something like this happens to someone you know or have known and care about, it makes you realize how easily it could be you. Every day we live and every breath we breathe is a gift from God. Far too often we take it for granted.

Please pray for the Skinner family. Please pray that the gospel will be clearly given at the funeral service and that many with tender hearts would respond to the truth of its message.

And let's all pray that for one another, that each one of us would redeem the time, and use the days God gives us to do something that will count in eternity. And that we would have the boldness and the courage to faithfully tell those around us of the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
