Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling? (Job 7:1)
Today's Morsel: I heard a lady say that the first thing she reads in the newspaper is the obituary to ensure that her name isn't there? Job said that there is an appointed time to man upon the earth. Moses said, "For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told. The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away" (Psalms 90:9-10). He said if we live to be 70 or 80, our lives will soon expire and we fly away. Are you ready to spend eternity with Jesus? Are you ready for your glorious crown? Are you ready to hear those words, "Well done, good and faithful servant? What story will be told of your life when you are gone? Friend, there is a city where there comes no night, because Jesus is the light. There is a place Jesus is preparing for you. So why not submit your life to Him that you may dwell in the city where the Lamb is the Light.
Sing: I'll fly away O' glory, I'll fly away; when I die hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away.
