I recently watched titanic on my TV. I knew it was a love story, but the reality of the story was about death and life! Okay, maybe I am losing the meaning of the movie, but the real story to me is we all have an end to our story. We are all going to die one day (Heb. 9:27), but it is up to us how we will be remembered.
Most are bored with just the thought of taking a history class, but they are not aware they create history every day with their lives. As I watched the movie, I thought to myself, “If they only knew soon a tragedy would take place.”
I have asked many people if they have given their life to Jesus. To that some say,”I plan on giving my life to Jesus before I die.” I bet that on April 14, 1912, the passengers of the Titanic didn’t realize it was their last day on earth! Some may have even thought they would plan out their “tomorrow” (or future). The bible speaks about waiting on tomorrow (James 4:13-17):
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”—yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say,“If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
This verse says to me, that each day should be a day to do God’s work! Take each day and live it like it is your last because tomorrow is not promised! (Matthew 6:34)
