About a year ago, the country artist Tim McGraw released a song entitled “Live Like You Were Dying”. The chorus of the song goes like this:
I can relate to this song. You see, I don’t know how long I’m going to be around. I have to think every day about how I live my life. I don’t want to waste a single moment.
I know I haven’t told most of you about this. I’ve lived my whole adult life and haven’t told many people. I sometimes get embarrassed talking about it. I don’t want to waste people’s time. I’m sure they are too busy to listen. Maybe they won’t like me if I tell them.
OK. So I’ll go ahead and tell you. You might as well hear it.
I’m a Christian. Jesus is coming back to this earth to take me, and everyone else who believes in him, with him.
You see, I am a sinner. I don’t deserve to go to heaven with Jesus. But, He came to this earth over 2,000 years ago and he was killed for our sins. He was perfect but He said that He would die so we didn’t have to. All we had to do was to put our faith in Him. I did that a number of years ago and now, I know that when Jesus does come back, I’m going with him. I don’t know when that will be but I am glad that I am ready. I am sorry that I didn’t tell you sooner. You too need to know Jesus. Please, accept His gift of salvation so you won’t be left when He comes. Life on this earth will be extremely difficult after He comes. In fact, you might not ever get another chance to accept Him. Don’t wait! Think about it and make a decision… but please don’t wait.
Now, where’s FuManChu. I’m going for the whole 8 seconds!
