Planning for retirement?

With the face app challenge one cannot just but wonder about aging and dying. Although life expectancy in the developed world is far greater than the expectancy in the developing world, it is important to think about death. For example as of 2016, life expectancy in Germany was 80 years old and in Nigeria it was 53 years old. Which is not so long if you think about it.

No matter how long you will live though, the question to think about is “Are you ready to meet your creator?” Don’t give me the crap about there being no God because in your heart of hearts, when you really think about it, you know that this earth as we know it did not design and create itself. There has to be a grand designer. He is God and He is so (for lack of a better word) brilliant. Now that we’ve established that there is a God, the challenge now is pointing who the true God is since there are several gods on the planet. There is Allah, Krishna, Ifa, Osun, Sango, Budha, Chinto etc. . . .

So who is the Creator?

Every other religion gives guidance and rules to live a good life on the planet but Christianity is about Jesus and when you remove Jesus from the equation, then there is no Christianity. Now, I am not talking about a religion, I am talking relationship. Jesus is everything and there is no life apart from Him (John 1). No other God died to redeem us from the evil within us. No other God wants a personal relationship with us. No other God wants to love us or talk to us. No other God!  And for the people who are atheist, the truth is that you are just not enough. You cannot deal with your problem of sin and evil by yourself. A simple example is the evil thought that plague your mind when you are alone.  The father of the Lord Jesus Christ is GOD and He loves you deeply!

Life is short and we usually prepare for retirement but how about we begin to prepare for eternity. Eternity is so long and Jesus calls us into a relationship with Him. Into a love relationship with Father God through Him. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to live away from the peace and love in God after death. This life is already difficult as it is, why would I want to choose to suffer in the afterlife?  You can either choose life with the Lord now or live apart from Him when you leave your body. The choice is yours.

“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” Deuteronomy 30:19

You are loved by God Completely.

Blessings,

Favour
