1 Samuel 20:3 And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death.
Sometimes we forget how sudden and unexpected death can be. Earlier today(this post was written last Monday) a mass killer went into a secure Navy facility and killed at least 13 people. While I was shocked and saddened it didn't dawn on me to use this as a wake up call for those who are not ready until I read the post of a fine Christian friend on Facebook encouraging all to be ready at all times.
I am ready to go whenever the Lord calls me home and because of severe heart trouble I am well aware as David was that "there is but a step between me and death".  Sadly this is true of everyone and so many are not ready.
None of those people who went to work today were expecting it to be their last day of life.  They were going about their business as usual never expecting a mad killer to take their lives. We hear more and more of these kinds of tragedies but sadly these are not the only instances where death comes suddenly. Sadly many do not realize this and are not prepared.
Death is not so frightening to those of us who know Jesus as our Lord and Savior. It should be very scary to those who do not.
It doesn't take a serial killer or a terrorist to bring sudden death.  It came come from disease, from an automible or any other kind of accident. It can come from a storm or flood or even a falling limb from a tree.  The fact is thaat there is but a step between all of us and death.
It is my hope that if you have never trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior that you will confess your sins and ask Him to come into your heart and save you.  You can never be saved too early but you can wait too late.
