Within the last 24-48 hours, many across our country and the world were shocked by the death of actress Carrie Fisher. Today, her mother, Debbie Reynolds, passed away. These two were icons in their own right, but these deaths remind us that life is a vapor as the Bible says in the book of James. We never know how long we have, so we must make the most of our time.
This begins by turning from our sin and entering a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). Making this life count also includes living a life that pleases God. He wants you to live out your God-given mission. His mission field for you may be working in a hospital, post office, grocery store, etc. You have a purpose, and God wants to touch some lives through you.
I cannot say a thing about where Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds stood with God, but you have a decision about yourself. You have a Lord who has invited you into His presence. Will you embrace Him today as Lord and Master of your life?
