According to worldometers.info, over 130K+ people will die today. If that’s not a reality check, I don’t know what is. If you’re reading this, you are alive. What a blessing. Please don’t take life for granted. Don’t waste it either. Live! Live forever!
“Do you think that I like to see wicked people die? says the Sovereign Lord. Of course not! I want them to turn from their wicked ways and live. (Ezekiel 18:23 NLT)
To better understanding, I encourage you to read all of Ezekiel 18.
God is a God of love, but he is also a God of perfect justice. His perfect love causes him to be merciful to those who recognize their sin and turn back to him, but he cannot wink at those who willfully sin. Wicked people die both physically and spiritually. God takes no joy in their deaths; he would prefer that they turn to him and have eternal life. Likewise, we should not rejoice in the misfortunes of nonbelievers. Instead, we should do all in our power to bring them to faith.
So start living now and keep it going. Need help? Refer to “In Good Company”.
