“In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to him and said, ‘This is what the Lord says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die; you will not recover.’” (Isa 38:1)

There is one thing we will all face regardless of who we are or what we do. It is the great inevitability of it that gives it the absoluteness of perfect certainty; it is going to happen.

Are you prepared to die? First, do you have absolute assurance that you will be welcomed into heaven? Only Jesus can get you there, so make your peace with Him now if you need to get right with God.

Physically have you prepared your family for your passing? Have a will and insurance in place as well as whatever financial and organizational preparation is required. We don’t want to think about such things, but we need to prepare for the certainty.

Quick Prayer: One day I will be with You. I will make sure I am prepared and have provided for those left behind. Amen.
