What will be your final words?
Some of Paul’s last words were “Don’t ever give up.”
There was no tinge of bitterness, no measure of regret, no anguish, and no remorse.
Paul obviously had kept short accounts in his life, so when the time came for him to die, he was ready.
2 Corinthians 7:10
“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death”
“Each of us will give an account of himself to God”
We can be prepared for the time when we meet Christ in heaven; it is only a heartbeat away.
Paul lived his life in readiness. He was accountable to others and lived in peace.
Are you keeping a short account? What will your final words be?
Pray: Father, please help me to keep short accounts in this life. If there is someone that I need to forgive or ask forgiveness from, please give me strength to do so now.
This is my Word of Hope, my friend.
