Listen to a thought on he Bible right here or read it below.
Hi I am Billy David Dickson with a thought on the Bible.
What are we leaving behind in this world. What will people think of us , or say about us , when we are no longer living in this world.
Those thoughts come to my mind as I reflect on the life of the former President of Cuba Fidel Castro, who passed from this life to the next life at the age of 90 a few months back.
The western media said things like he loved the people of Cuba. In truth he put many souls from Cuba in prison for speaking out against the Cuban government, or following the Lord instead of following Castro. Other souls he had put to death.
I do believe there are things we can learn from the life of Castro.
The first lesson is what are we leaving behind. What will people think of you and I after we are gone.The people of Cuba, and many souls in the world will not have good things to say about Castro. No matter what the media says. You may not have put souls in prison like Castro, but have you put your job ahead of your family. Have you not been honest with others in business matters. Have you treated others wrongly.
The second lesson while we are living we can always change. It is too late for Castro. However you, and I can change with God’s help. We can not change on our own. Philippians 4:13 reads , “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
The last lesson and the most important one is we all are going to die. What will matter is what we did with Christ. The question is do you know him. If you don’t know him after death there is no hope for you. Before you die you can find that hope. All you have to do is admit you are a sinner, and embrace Jesus Christ as your savior. It is too late for Castro. One can only hope he repented of his sins and received Christ. God is going to say when you stand before him, well done good and faithful servant. Or he is going to say the most horrible words I never knew you. What decides what God says is decided by what you do with Christ.
That is a thought on the Bible.
Until next time,
I’m Billy David Dickson
