What If?

HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED THE POSSIBILITY THAT IT’S ALL TRUE?

I’d like to suggest two exercises. First, write a what-if letter to yourself. Second, write a what-if letter to someone in your life. You may decide to write to your children. You may decide to write to your parents. You may decide to write to an old college roommate, a friend from a job you used to have, or someone who crossed your path recently or long ago.

Some people will ignore such a letter. But for others it will be a life-altering moment.

What if? It is a question worthy of our serious consideration.

And if it really is all as Jesus explains it, do you really want to be on the wrong side of it when your time comes?

We all die, and yet, so often we conduct our lives as if we were going to live forever. If you knew you were going to die one year from today, how would you change your life? Why are you waiting? Life is short. Too often we take for granted next week and next month and next year. We make plans for the future, not knowing if that future will be given to us. God gives us life one moment at a time, and he wants us to experience life in every breath we take.

God and life are always to be found in the now. Live each now passionately with God.
