Life is short but only

One of the greatest friends that I’ve had in my life was named Dan Owens. I met him when he was in his early twenties, and he died very young – in my book anyway. He got ill at age 54 and at 58 he had gone to be with the Lord. His wife Debbie cried for him, loved him very much. He served God beautifully. He traveled to Africa, to India, to Europe, to Romania. He traveled to many countries and the greatest joy of his life was to lead man and women and especially teenagers and boys and girls to Jesus Christ. 

I thought about an old saying that used to be said often in the old days: “Only one life ‘twill soon be past; only what’s done for Christ will last.” And you know, that’s absolutely the truth. Life is so fast! Listen, I’ve been around for seven decades consciously and life seems to have gone so fast. But when you do it for Christ, and in the power of Christ you can look back and say, “Lord, I made many mistakes. You’ve been very patient, but I lived for you, I served you, and I’m ready to go.”

Are you ready to go? Is your life dedicated to Jesus Christ? Remember, only one life it will soon be past, and only what’s done for Christ will last. So do it!
