Each one of us will face that same fact one day—none of us will get out of this world alive! That is a simple fact of life (and death!). The bigger question here is simply this: what will happen to all your “stuff?” More and more we seem to be living in a material world when we are judged (by the world) by what we have instead of who we really are. I saw a bumper sticker which read, “He who dies with the most stuff wins!” But then I saw another bumper sticker that read, “He who dies with the most stuff is still dead!”
Truth is that no matter how much “stuff” we amass, it does not matter. What does matter is our relationship with Jesus Christ! That is something we can take to the grave with us – in fact, it is the only thing we can take to the grave with us! There is nothing in this world that is as important as your relationship with Jesus Christ, absolutely nothing! I would encourage you to do just one thing – make sure you have that close and personal relationship with Jesus. The amount of money you have in a bank account does not matter, the number of barns you have or the type of car you drive does not matter. In the end, only one thing matters and that is whether you have the right kind of relationship with Jesus Christ or not. Find out for sure about your relationship with Him before it is too late! Amen.
